    Oh my god... I love chickens. I wish I were in a situation that I could keep them.

    But it's probably for the best... I know literally nothing about them. XD /stalks thread for cute baby pictures

    I am having a ton of trouble finding pictures of pullets and roosters at the age of my girls (about 5 months), but this one's tail is just coming in...different. It seems to be curved and sparser than the others. Here are a few angles, sorry for the shadows, this little girl/guy would NOT cooperate with the camera and hold still:






    No one is laying yet, I don't hear any crowing attempts, no one has fully formed combs or wattles, no sign of any spurs, so I just don't know what to think. I probably won't really know until I start seeing them lay, but just curious if you all look at this pictures and tell me it's clearly a boy.

    And just because it's a glorious day out, I thought I'd share one of my sunbathing beauties:

    Pullet. In my limited SLW rooster experience (3) by 5 months there is no doubt when they are cockrels. (I've been about to tell before they are out of the brooder) Combs are flat, fat and red but mostly the feathering on that one is hen. Male laced wyandotte have more of a splash feathering by now. He would have large patches of gold feathers on his wings and he's easily outweigh the pullets by a pound. His body carriage would be more upright. I get those funky cycle tail feathers about 25% of the time on pullets.

    Left Hand, thank you for giving me some hope! I will give everyone an update a month or so from now when we get a little more certainty.
