    Hi Everyone! I’m hoping some one can tell me weather my Golden laced Wyandotte is a Hen or a Roo? I’m pretty sure both my Sliver laced and my White Cochin are both hens. They were hatched the 8th of july.

    With that much red at 8-9 weeks, I would vote boy.

    Wyandotte females are notorious for going red early. I would say you just have to wait for this one. If it's a male, it'll start growing a huge patch of red on it's wing pretty soon.

    I'd say that it is a rooster. That's just a lot of comb for his/her age. However, Wyandottes, especially those from hatcheries, often develop combs early on. So, don't give up hope yet! The coloring and leg size also look female.
