    I think I've figured out the roos vs hens on the D'uccles, they seem pretty easy to distinguish. Just wanted to check and see if my guesses jive with the more experienced folks' opinions. On the Wyandottes, I have not much clue. Some combs are pinker than others, but again, I have no idea. The Sebrights seem to be the hardest. I cannot begin to guess.

    D'uccle, I think roo:

    For the wyandottes, that first one is likely a roo-but I'd need to seee some standing, profile shots of the birds to confirm.

    I will get some new pics of the Wyandottes. I have 5 of them, and when taking the pics I lost track of who was who!

    On the Wyandottes, can someone tell me what to look for to tell roo or hen? They all look the same to me.

    Quote:Well, from our experience....the roos get there waddles sooner. They are slower to feather. And you can sometimes* tell by how they look compaired to a hen of a similar age.
