    Okay, I know that I'm a bad mommy for not knowing for sure... But I think my babies are 5 weeks old. Any help in identifying the gender(s) will be much appreciated! I get a feeling that I am going to have more roosters than I know what to do with! Guess there will be no more sleeping late for me!!!

    They all look like roo's to me. My SLW are 5 weeks and don't have a hint of red on their combs.

    Okay. Well that's what our friend that gave them to us "told" us they were. Any idea what they really are. This is my first time having chicks. I'll believe just about anything that ya tell me... (obviously)

    Yeah, now that I see all the pics (they didn't load the first time) they don't look like SLW's at all. The heads do, but not the rest.
