    Just curious about the gender of my 3 Wyandottes. I'm thinking 2 pullets and a cockerel. I'll try to get better pictures of the other 2.

    I think you have all pullets though I'm unsure on one of them.

    Updated pictures of all 3. They're 7 weeks now. I'm still thinking 1 cockerel, 2 pullets.

    I think your right, the SLW looks like the cockerel.

    Me too. I was hoping for a Gold Laced cockerel only because they're prettier in my opinion, but I'm fine with Silver Laced!

    I've never had a GLW but my SLW was a very stunning rooster.

    I hope he is also! I just don't want him to be aggressive.

    Just wanted to update. He is a beautiful rooster, and not at all aggressive. He has a bit of red on his wings, but I don't show so SOP doesn't matter. I'm happy with how they turned out. One of the hens is actually a blue laced red which is what I was hoping for. :)
