    Hi all, I'm stating to wonder about this one, supposed to be a pullet, but I have 2 Wyandottes and this one is starting to look quite different from my other. Approx 7 weeks old, I've lost count exactly. Hen or roo?
    Thanks!!!

    With that much comb and wattle development at 7 weeks, I would guess cockerel.

    well darn, that's what I was thinking too, We are new to chickens this year and didn't really want a roo, just some laying birds, but I've been reading lots of forums and I'm thinking maybe we will keep him around after all for protection of the other 7 girls. If he doesn't work out, we can always find another use for him in my kitchen, wink wink!
    Thanks all!!!!!!!!
