    I hatched this one, [​IMG] and thought I had it feathered sexed (by the wing feathers) correct. But I think I was really wrong.
    I really wanted a hen too.

    This thing has a pretty big red comb [​IMG]

    I don't need anymore roosters. Out of my five surviving chicks, four counting this one are roos [​IMG]

    Well it looks like a cockerel, but it has a single comb, the Wyandottes should have a rose comb. Pretty bird.

    sometimes with blrw a single comb shows up. so you couldn't show it. Most of the ones I hatched had a rose comb.

    How old? I don't see any boy feathers yet.

    I think it is pretty hard to just go by comb color. I have an 11 week old Dark Brahma that is definitely a girl and is quite red in the face and comb. She started pinking up earlier than expected maybe 6 weeks and has the deepest cluck I've ever heard. Her friend is the same age and is really pale and is still chirping. Very precocious.

    I don't think it's a roo, but could be a "gym teacher."

    That's a huge thick comb. I'm thinking rooster. Sorry. [​IMG]
