    Hi, Can someone help me determine the sex of my 7-8 week old silver laced wyandotte? The comb developed very early but has not changes color. This chick seemed much more confident and mature (but not in an aggressive way). I will have to rehome if it is a roo due to county requirements.Thanks for any input! We are new to this :) [​IMG]

    Thank you! I have already grown attached to the four we have. I hope my husband stays married to me after this little adventure :)

    It looks like a pullet to me but i could be wrong. My Barred Rock had a bigger comb too and even did at a fdw days old but she wound up being a girl
