    I have two 4 week old bantam SL Wyandotte chicks that I'd like some help sexing.

    I think you're right. Cockerel and pullet.

    (What is the hen's breed? She's beautiful!)

    I think you're right - can you see any wattles on the first chick yet? [​IMG] Beautiful birds. [​IMG]

    Quote:No, I don't see any wattles on the first one. At what age would the wattles show if it's a roo?

    The first one has been larger from the day they hatched, so I'm not really going by the size at all. I know it's comb is starting to redden up but it's behavior makes me question whether or not it's a roo.....it's way more skittish than the smaller one.


    thanks for your help....still crossing fingers that they are both pullets [​IMG]
