    Can you tell pretty well the gender of Wyandottes? Most specifically, Blue Wyandottes and Blue Laced Red Wyandottes? Besides waiting for a crow or an egg, what age can you have a good idea of the gender? Thanks [​IMG]

    For me, it's been pretty obvious at 4 weeks. Using comb colour, of course. But it is reallllly difficult if you only have one, camparison help incredibly.

    I have 4 of them. 2 Blues and 2 Splash BLRW. The Splash's combs are no different at all. One thing I found odd though, one of my Blues has a flesh colored comb (no pink to it) and the other has a black comb. What's up with that? These girls are 8 weeks old and supposed pullets. I am rehoming 2 of them and want to be as honest as I can be when sending them to their new homes. I have some pictures here:

    There are more pictures further down as well. If you think they are anything other then 8 weeks feel free to say so too, but if you wouldn't mind taking a look and giving me an opinion or thought? Thanks! I want to keep the Splash BLRW with the somewhat better color/lacing and the Blue Wyandotte with the flesh colored comb. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] for pullets!
