    [​IMG][/img] I purchased only pullets. 5 goldenlaced wyandottes, 5 dominiques and 6 silverlaced wyandottes. This one is much taller. Comb is turning rosy red. Feathers are slower to come in than the others. Very active and friendly. Can you tell by the comb and how tall they are? I still love him/her. I will keep it; but we are just curious if a rooster has snuck into the hen house.[​IMG][/img][​IMG]

    Bright red comb/wattles at it's age, considerably big feet, plumage coloration (though that can get confusing in laced breeds at times..). There are a lot of ways to tell. You should do a search.. I agree he is a rooster.
