New to the chicken raising game...not sure if I've got a chicken or a rooster?

post #1 of 3

Hello,

 

 

I'm new to chicken raising and boy oh boy is it addicting! I have 4 six week old hens (hopefully) that are finally outside happy and healthy! My Silver Laced Wyandotte is looking rather roostery and I was hoping to gain some insight from veteran chicken raisers as to whether its a pullet or a roo!? What does everyone think?

 100% guarantee that you have a chicken - you can quote me on that!  ;)

 

The wyandotte looks like a pullet to me, but s/he is still a bit young.  Give it a couple of weeks and they should literally, start to show their true colors via wattles and comb starting to turn a deeper pink/red if it's a roo...
