    I'm new to wyandottes , so I have no experience in sexing them. This little guy is 9 weeks old. Pullet or cockerel? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'm leaning towards cockerel, but Wyandottes can be tricky to sex.

    Boy. The color in the face and the darker red patches developing on the wings make me think so.

    Still think its a cockerel? I'm not seeing any rooster hackle or saddle feathers and its feathers are all rounded not pointy.[​IMG]
