    It was gorgeous out so I took two of my Silver Laced Wyandotte chicks, Kim and Jennifer (named after my friends) outside to play. I'm pretty sure Jennifer (on the right) is a boy, but now Kim (on the left) is looking a bit roo-ish too. Am I wrong? Kim is such a sweetheart, she comes up to me and will eat out of my hand.

    Holey shmoley... Combs like that and they still have their baby fuzz?! Absolutley, those two are cockerels.

    Oh no, Kim was my last hope for a SLW hen! That means all four of my SLW's are cockerels.
