Brand New to Chickens... The reddish comb on this 4.5 week old has me worried she's a he!
It is looking pretty red already, but Wyandotte do get a redder comb earlier than other breeds and can be tricky. Give it another week or two.
Wyandottes and those darn rose combs can mess with you. The rose combs seem more reactive to exertion and can pink up simply from the bird running around or being excited.
Good news is that the comb is small and not fleshy and the feather coloring looks nicely even with good gold markings throughout. GLW roosters will not develop the overall even lacing of the girls, especially hatchery stock.
But it is early.
Wyandottes are one of the breeds harder to sex early.
SubscribING to this thread because I have 12 chicks from the hatchery and I know one was a blue laced Wyandotte and they werent sexed.
