I'm not a pro but he looks like a Silver-Laced Wyandotte. He looks male because of the sharpISH feathers on his saddle..
Hey thanks for the reply! It was a packing peanut so I expected boy... But I LOVE him and if I pick one roo, he is IT!
silver laced wyandotte and cockerel due to those white patches...there are no "sharp" feathers what you see is the feather pattern
i think it's a dotte pullet. not enough wattle or red in the comb and wattles to be a roo.
try here for some shots of both young roos and hens. https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...ullet-or-roo-june-13th-8-weeks-old-new-photos
if you have any shots of when she was a chick. white wings usually means a roo and black ones usually means a hen. slow to feather out usually means a roo. any more pics you could post might help.
Wouldn't be so sure that it was a cockerel. I'm not seeing any white cockerel patches, just poorly laced areas all over the body where more white than normal is showing. Looks like a pullet to me.
Akashia26: the link didn't work...but here is a screen shot of a video we took the morning we picked up chicks. I could post the whole vid if needed. It's the farthest one with black grey wings with white patch on lower wing. Thank you!
here at 2 weeks:
3 week old pullet. 4c9fa565_DSC01140.jpeg
3 week old roo 923653ab_DSC01134.jpeg
4 week pullet c56d3580_DSC01183.jpeg
4 week roo beec0ed2_DSC01170.jpeg
7 week pullet 5227376
7 week roo 5227370
maybe that will work. still think it's a pullet. the gallery might be off by a little. but the 7 week roo has red comb and wattles and kinda looks grumpy from being held.
