Hen or Roo silver laced wyandotte ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi, Can someone help me determine the sex of my 7-8 week old silver laced wyandotte? The comb developed very early but it has not really changed color. This chick seemed much more mature and confident than my others (all different breeds) but does seem aggressive in any way. I will have to re-home if it is a roo :( Thanks for any input!

I'm gonna blow some minds here, but my guess is going to be pullet. My Wyandottes pinked up really early on (but they have rose combs, and that's a little different) and yet they still turned out to be girls. That's just my thinking! :)

Agreed, that comb isn't to big nor red so I'm going with pullet.

Wrong comb, but little feet. Makes me think pullet.

Thank you for your input. I really hope it is a pullet. I am already attached.
