    I have 11 golden and silver-laced Wyandotte chicks that are in the midst of being sexed. If you could guess for me on each corresponding numbered chick, that would be great. I think I have an idea of who is what now but some extra eyes would be helpful.

    Please post pics of their combs when they are six weeks old.

    2, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, and 11 look like roosters to me (couldn't see the combs of a few of them...). Looks like it's close to 50/50, though...

    I'll take a guess. Its a little soon but some definitely look like they might turn into cockerels... 2, 5, 9 and 10.

  5. Well for what it’s worth I’ll have a try. The normal comb has thrown me on the first one but I’ll say
    1 cockerel
    2 hen
    3 hen
    4 hen ( comb? )
    5 cockerel
    6 hen
    7 hen
    8 hen
    9 cockerel
    10 cockerel
    11 hen

    Do Wyandottes have straight combs ever?

  7. Apparently so according to what I have read here. True to type would not.

    It seems these are a combination of both single and rose combs. What I believe I have is 7 roo's - 2 single combs and 5 rose combs & 4 hens - 1 single comb and 3 rose combs.

    These were purchased at a local tractor supply store as straight run. Breed standard is a rose comb so I am already assuming they are mixed although their feathers all seem to be coming in quite nicely. I guess I get to wait and see.

    3, 6, 7 & 8 I believe are hens with 7 being the only single comb.

    The rest are roo's IMO with 1 & 4 being single combs.

    I got them all out today in the grass in natural sunlight to give them a good look over.

    And just because I'm in love with the darling, here's Red being absolutely beautiful in every way.

    Would like to see them at 8 weeks old. Pictures are too distracting because of color of your slacks & hard to see them well enough with being held.
