I suspect that my blue laced red Wyandotte is perhaps a rooster. It always seemed more adventurous and confrontational than my other two chicks with thicker legs and now it’s developing more of a comb but I’m not sure if this is just due to the breed. I’m a newbie to raising and caring for chickens. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

First of all, too young.
Second, we can't tell with the red light.

Hello and welcome to BYC! It would be most helpful if you could post individual photos of each chick you would like identified. Good view of the comb area and if you could provide their age as well. They look to be about four weeks old from what I can tell. Thanks!😊

The chicken in those pictures is a male Crested Cream Legbar.

First one indeed looks like a crested cream legbar cockerel.
Second one looks like a production red. One of the photos the comb looks like a cockerel, but I think it may be the lighting, as the other photos looks like a pullet.
Last one looks to be a naked neck pullet. 😊
