    Boy or Girl? Sorry pictures are not great. 10 weeks old. Supposed to be pullet but now I am wondering.

    I would say a girl...

    My Golden Wyandotte looks like her only she's 5 weeks old.

    But I am not an expert by far.

    I don't know the answer to your question, I just wanted to tell you what a pretty (or handsome) bird that is!

    If the wattles start getting just as big as the combs getting its probably a boy, if the wattles take longer to grow its probably a pullet

    Looks like a pullet, a cockerel at 10 weeks would have much larger, redder comb and wattles. Wyandotte pullets do get combs and wattles early but they will not develop as quickly as a rooster's would.

    [​IMG]Well, I sold my main roosters 1st son today, he was 10 wks old, this pic he was around 8 wks., so he grew a little.
    [​IMG]This is him and his sister Cinder :) I still have her and will have her forever! They were both so sweet together but I didn't wanna breed brother to sister & we already have a main GLW rooster so I gave him to a friend :)
