    All of the Wyandottes pictured are cockerels.

    I was really starting to think this one may be a pullet. I had bought two and both started showing combs and wattles at around 7 weeks. One then started growing a lot faster and it's wattles seems more red, body size was bigger, and the legs were yellow and a lot thicker. The one pictured above seems more docile. Below is a picture of the suspected roo, who was eaten by a predator not long after the picture.

    And here is the best side by side picture I was able to get of them

    Given the wing patches, I'm leaning towards cockerels, too. [​IMG]

    Their combs are way to big and red for pullets at that age.
