    Hi, I'm completely new to raising chickens. I was giving two Golden Laced Wyandotte's from someone at work and they're happily in the coop :) they're now 8 weeks old and I was hoping someone would be able to tell me whether they're cock's or roos?

    these do not look like my gold laced wyandotte.
    Are the bantams?

    The chick to the left in the 2 and 3rd pic is most likely a pullet (female) the other one is looking boyish to me. (could possibly be female, but if I HAD to guess at this point I'd say boy)
