    This is Widget. I am unsure how old he/she is. Anyone able to put my mind at ease? If I have another rooster I am going to need to pick up a couple more pullets.

    If you have too many roosters you can start a rooster flock.

    I'm thinking that's a pullet. I have a 12 week old SLW cockerel and he was way patchier than your chick. SLW pullets should be pretty solidly laced whereas the cockerels will be quite patchy.

    Here's my cockerel as a comparison.

    Yayy! Thank you for your opinion. I really do hope so. She has been on my "we'll see" status up until last week when I started seeing some changes for it to show more signs of a pullet; however I'm not expert at all. That's why I wanted to see what you guys can say.
