    I think I know but I just wanted to see your thoughts?

    I can only get them out of the coop when It's cleaning day. They still love their home.

    It's hard to say without seeing the entire body and knowing the age. I would guess boy though. The lacing I can see on the back looks like a roo's markings.

    About 9 weeks old. I will try again in a few hours to get a full body shot. Maybe I should do some feather research on the breed to know what to look for.

    [​IMG] Here is one of my female SLW that is 12 weeks old showing the back lacing. Her comb is non-existent, but I did have a SLW that was a female and very red in the face at 8 weeks. Now I'm leaning more towards girl :lol: The comb/wattles don't sway my guess - it's just the feathering that had me considering boy.

    This would be easier if they would come out of the coop.

    I agree, hard to say by these pictures...but if they are getting waddles at 9 weeks, they are likely boys(Butch for sure is a boy).
