    Does this 7 week old SLW show any signs of being a cockerel or a pullet? I posted a few weeks ago and everyone said roo, but i am not so sure there is almost no comb yet and the comb area is just pink.

    I went back and looked at pics of my 2 SLW cockerels from about that age. Their combs were red and they were starting to get waddles. Also, their coloring was patchier.

    I'd am guessing (and hoping) pullet.

    Your SLW looks just like my 5 week old SLW. I hope their hens!
