I need help sexing this gold laced Wyandotte - Page 2
On my GLW? I wasn't really sure what makes it look rooish. Other than it is missing a few tail feathers, it had looked very similar to my other two. That's why I was curious when their feathering starts to change. Also it is very sweet, but just recently. It has been very timid up until the last 10 days or so. And when I walk near it, it does the squat. Which I didn't know roosters did. I had always thought that was a laying hen thing.

This morning I went out and really concentrated on the other two GLW's I have and both of them have very similar sized cones and waddles and the color is similar. They aren't quite as red as some of my barred rocks, and out of my 5 BRLW's who are 10 days younger, they are about as big as these three. I now I have2 buff opr, 1 speckled Sussex, 1 Ameraucana, and 1 Cuckoo Marans roo, and they have all been very evident that they were roos for going on a month now. the two buff orps and the Ameraucana has probably been 6 weeks or so now. I wouldn't mind if it were a roo, just would really like to know when they start changing their plumage so I can keep an eye and get it into the rooster runs before the hens start laying. I have only had one roo even attempt to crow so that isn't helping me at all :)
