    Hi all
    I hatched 2 SLW chicks, one was teeny tiny and one regular sized, anyway as they grew the bigger one got more roo like and no surprise now is crowing, the other seems to be much slower developing (even its feathering was much slower) but now i am wondering it it is a roo too, can someone tell me do SLW have pale combs til they lay can they be reddish?? i am assuming its a roo by the comb, i have a x bred (other breed) same hatch that has no colour in its comb at all..
    thanks

    Can you post a pic for us? Trying to ID chickens without a photo is like shooting in the dark.
