    is this a boy or a girl? We are strongly hoping this is a girl however this is my first batch of babies and I can't tell. It is 10 weeks old.

    That's my silver laced Wyandote. The comb is actually redder than it looks in the picture.

    I know she's mixed with cuckoo maran I believe. I am not a breeder, they are more just pets for me. I don't care if she's mixed.

    If her face was more forward facing it would be easier but at ten weeks a roosters comb and waddles will be more developed than a pullet and really starting to turn red. At about 12 weeks a Rooster will start making wierd crow like sounds. Also by ten weeks you would see some long skinny feathers forming around the neck and saddle areas. I would guess this is a pullet.

    Enjoy her
