    I have two silver laced wyandottes about to be three months old, mi issue is i only bought two and now i am regretting that as i think they are both roosters[​IMG]. They have about another week or two before they turn three months and these are the only two of this breed i have (we also bought two buff and two americanas same age) out of what we bought that already have started getting waddles...and their combs/faces are more red then pink please tell me they arent roosters, i post pictures tomorrow morning if i can get them but could there be a chane they are females i havent seen the adult feathers yet but i know at this point that doesnt mean anything.

    Ok so i couldnt get pictures the little brats wouldnt let me close enough as soon as i would get close to get a good picture they would run. Everyone locked in the coop and in the morning i have my husband help me catch the two in question to get a picture of each.

    [​IMG]we call this one 2. these were the best pictures I got of both of them sadly thanks to how skittish they are, they were in the nesting box area.

    Sorry, can't help you. they don't look particularly rooish right now, but that could change. They are a bit slower to mature than EE IMO.

    Those combs and wattles are pretty small and flat, the look like pullets to me.
