Hi!! I have 2 silver laced Wyandottes that are 7.5 weeks old. They have the same pattern but different coloring. Can you guys please help me determine if they are pullets or cockerel? Also posting a pic of my gold Easter Egger who is also 7.5 weeks. What do you think?? Male or female? Thank you!!!

The extra white on the wings of a SLW is never a good sign. Typical of males. His size is also a bit larger. I would expect more red in his face so ask again in a week The other one is a pullet. The EE feathering is typical of a female.

All 3 are pullets. It’s a common occurance that hatchery/low quality Wyandottes have bad lacing, either too much white or too much black. They can even out a bit as they go through adult moults though.

I'd agree that all three of the birds are pullets. It's possible the SLW with more white could be a cockerel, but I'd wait another couple of weeks before determining that for sure.
