    I am hoping for a pullet but I think this ones a roo. If its a roo, then this is the second time I got a Pritchett Hatchery GLW chick that turned out to be roo!![​IMG]

    Can you take a nice, clean shot that shows the whole bird in a natural, standing position from the side?

    Looks Like a Rooster, but If I could also see a side profile pic----I might change my opinion!

    It's a hen! I've had wyandottes before and if it was a roo the coloring would be different and it's comb would be MUCH larger!




    Wyandottes are so easy to sex!

    Just to be sure it's not a SLOW developing roo with wrong coloring can you post a pic of its tail

    This is a SLW roo next to an EE roo. See how his comb is pink and large at 3 weeks?
