    Can someone out there help me determine the sex of my Silver Laced Wyandottes?

    Both of these are about 17 weeks old and are supposed to be hens but they do not look the same.

    Thanks for your help.

    I am a newbie but i would guess the top one is a roo i think i see bumps on the legs where the spurs will be........

    I can't see well enough to tell if the hackle feathers and saddle feathers are pointy, but by the size and redness of that comb and wattles, i would venture that the top one is a boy, a very pretty boy, by the way.

    I don't know, I might have to contradict everyone... unless it crows in the next weeks it could very well be a hen. my sex link hens look like that but are a different color ofcourse and they are my best egg layers. One of the girls even has spurs but layed great until this summer.
