    Well, just to cast one last shadow of hope to my sweet "frenchie" the no longer female SLW... I thought I'd show another photoset before I begin searching for a home.

    I Apologize for the redundancy, I merely have tamed and love this bird so I want to be extra sure!

    Thanks!

    I think it may still be a girl, but I don't think it's a SLW.

    It looks just like my SLW pullets at that age.

    I'm really making an effort not to yell YIPEEEEEEEEEEE!

    Well, truth shall be revealed soon enough, but I feel highly optimistic now.
    Thanks!

    Most of my SLWs looked just like that at around 8 weeks...some more colored some not...and at 18 weeks all are girls. The guessing game nearly killed me! [​IMG] I think you have a pullet there, but only time will tell. Here's to hoping! [​IMG]
