    So I got this one little SLW straight run chick 11 weeks ago. I figured after the first 2 weeks it was a roo because it grew it's waddles and comb early. Since then it hasn't developed much more and I now have people saying he's a she :) I'd LOVE your opinions! This is the only SLW I've ever had...[​IMG]

    Its not so much the breed as it is the pattern. Cockerels of laced patterns have these wing bars.
