    I'd hate to say it, but probably. Roos have bigger, redder combs. If they are all the same age, and only one of them has a comb, it is probably a rooster.

    Wyandottes are hard to distinguish between a roo and a hen by just a description and a comb. I had 4 SLW's who people thought should have been crowing at an early age and they turned out to be hens. There is an uploads tab up on the blue bar ^^^. Put your picture in there and copy the image link and post. True SLW's come with a rose comb but those single combs do pop up and they grow faster than the rose combs.

    Sorry it took me so long the reply,but I'm not going to post a pic because my friend who has chickens took a look at mine and said that their most likely all hens.
    They have had chicken for a long time so I'm pretty sure their right! But thankyou for all your help!!
