    First impression was no 1 is a roo due to the redness and the thickness of the legs, esp c/w the white one behind it.

    Second one I thought hen, due to thinner legs in first pic, but second pic legs look kinda thick. I'm undecided.

    We have two hatchery SLW pullets that kept us guessing for weeks. We were examining these two closely everyday and hoping that they were pullets. Their combs and wattles pinked up early but then grew very slowly. As for the size of their legs, I noticed that their legs looked thin from the front and thick from the side. We weren't sure that they were girls until they were 14-15 weeks old. In your case, I would recommend that you wait a few weeks and post more pics then. [​IMG]

    I think they are roos, but ya wait another 2 weeks and you will know for sure. I have a SLW thats 2 weeks older than yours and he is just really started to show within the last week. I would wait and take pics of him in like a little over a week and then post them.
  10. [​IMG] Thanks everyone, if it helps any I got them from [​IMG] Cackle Hatchery. I'll wait a week or two and post 'em 2 GLW's again, Thanks again everyone. [​IMG]
