    Hi.

    Those are not the lace pattern I am familiar with on Wyandottes. Which is usually a very easy give away to gender because the boys don't get lacing on the top of their wings, but more like a smeared color bar.

    To me, your second ones have too much pink in the comb and waddles to be comfortable to say girls.

    Can you tell what color your ear lobes are?Almost wondering if they are another rose comb breed?

    Can you get a shot of the wings on the ones you think are boys for comparison.

    These are partridge Wyandotte bantams for sure...

    The first two are definitely cockerels.
    The one on the right looks like a pullet. I'm leaning toward the one on the right being a pullet, too, though the comb is a little red.

    I was thinking that might be the possibility even though I am only familiar with the laced varieties. Love partridge birds!

    So in your pics, the ones you are pretty sure are boys (I am to)... they also seem much darker in coloration already? Or is it just the pic? Anyways, dark color is good indicator. But on your last 2, the left ones' waddles look bigger than the right still. Can you tell the thickness of the legs being different between the boys and girls? Standing side shots are good.

    I guess you last two are great for the guessing game. [​IMG] Thanks for letting me learn along!

    I'm gonna basically agree with Bantam lover... thinking maybe it's meant the one on the right and my other right! [​IMG]
