    Hi! I'm new here! This is my second time getting chicks! I have two gold laced whyandottes and two blue laced Wyandottes... They are all 12 weeks old.. Are they roosters or hens?? I also have 4 silver laced a ones but they look a lot different than these, they combs and wattles aren't so pronounced, are these hens or roosters?? They look like Roos to me, help!

    Really? Do you think they are all pullets?? How come my silver laced Wyandottes combs and wattles are bigger and red? I'm relieved though!

    At that age cockerel combs would be much larger and redder.

    No sign of saddle feathers either, and at that age boys would have them.
