    I think its a girl. No spurs, feathers are rounded, comb and wattles are quite small.

    we rang the breeder tongith ,and she said she doesnt keep doms or barred rocks,the only thing she keeps in barred wyandottes ive found this site that has a pic of a hen wyandotte,but to me zeebs looks more fluffier on her bottom end and tail and is also alot lighter.

    no we dont,weve believed it was a male dom so rang her up to ask to swap and she just said she doesntkeepthem at all ,the onlything it is is a barred wyandotte.then went onto to sday shed have tio kill it if it was a boiy but she doubts it as they dont get barred wyandottes wrong as theyre easily sexed very young.i feel like c**p thinkg about what willhappen if zeebs is a boy,so desperately tryingto find somthing or someone to help.x
