    Hi there! I'm a new chicken mama and am so amazing at the knowledge and experience I've seen in these forums. 6 weeks ago we picked up a silver laced wyandotte, speckled sussex, blue wyandotte, and an easter egge r all sold as girls. Im really beginning to question the SLW due to the fact that he's really pink in the comb, has larger feet, and his feathers didn't come in as evenly as the others. We also got a frizz led bantam cochin who I believe is a boy with this HUGE orange comb. . Thank you for any input

    Haha I understand the feeling! The fuzzy looking one looks like a Roo just on the size of comb for the age and the pink it has already!

    Yep, that frizzle looks like a male.

    I'm not convinced on the Wyandotte. I'm not seeing clear male signs at this point. I'd just wait and see.
