    We have 2 9-week old Golden Laced Wyandottes. One of them developed a comb very early -- and I think he could be a Roo. What do you all think?

    Below are pix of both of them:

    You called it right. Atticus has huge legs and feet, as well as very little tail. Speckles looks just like my girls when they were younger.

    I concur with the other two posts. Great looking birds, by the way!

    I, too, agree with the previous posters. Atticus is a male bird. Always take note the wider the comb at the front of the skull generally yields males.

    Good luck with your birds. [​IMG]
