    All chicks were purchased straight run about 3 weeks ago. What do you guys think? Boys or girls?

    Chick # 4 - Splash Laced Wyandotte (why does he/she have a different comb than the other wyandottes?)

    It's too early.
    I've had Wyandottes I swore were roos that ended up
    Pullets. They can fool you.

    i noticed some of their combs have a pinkish tinge. did your roos have that too? i'd be thrilled if they were all girls but i don't think i'll get that lucky.

    I had 2 BLW that were red earlier than expected. I swore they'd be roos. Most on here thought so too.
    Nope. Lol
    It's best just to wait.
