Silver laced wyandottes gender

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have been sitting on these guys for 18 weeks now, resisting the urge to post them here. I kinda suspect 2 of being cockerels, but I'm not experienced with the rose comb or the breed so I'm still not sure.

Those back feathers are broad and rounded. You have 2 pullets that should be laying any day now.

Thanks, do you think they are all pullets then? Just two are closer to POL?

These 2 are squatting, do you think they are red enough that they should be laying soon? I got them 6 weeks ago,they finished a molt about 3 weeks ago.

I see all females. 

 

the laced pattern on the feathers can drive folks nuts for sexing sometimes. that pattern created an optical illusion of the feather being pointed. But if you take a feather and lay it on a piece of paper, or just hold it up and look at it, the shape is rounded, not pointed like male sex feathers. 

 

I'm thinking you'll get eggs within the next few weeks.

Pullets

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
