Not sure if there would be much difference across the different colours of wyandotte, but I ended up with a white sport wyandotte who I was positive was a roo based on this thinking - it was a a good 2-3 weeks behind my other chicks on the feathering but at around 6-7 weeks she was fully feathered out and looking a hell of a lot more like a hen than a roo, so I stuck her photo up and 9/9 people told me 'he' was indeed a she!

From the research I've done, the feathering theory is generally true, but some lines and I suppose some cases its the opposite!

Hahaha! But of course...lol. If there is one thing I've learned about chickens it's that they have many ways of teaching me patience. "wait and see" is a concept I am now thoroughly familiar with.

My wyandottes a few of the females did feather in faster but a few did not. The males all had thicker legs and became much bigger with larger red combs and wattles than the females by about 6 to 8 weeks it was apparent who was who so you don't have to wait long to figure it out. Plus watch their additive the Roos will become much more feisty usually.
