    Hi, These are my first Wyandottes... one Golden Laced and one Silver Laced. The Silver Laced has always been a bit smaller, having been pecked on when younger. This GLW is a bit bigger. They are both about 14 weeks at the time of the photo (?).

    But, my neighbor is saying this GLW may be a roo? With this type of comb it's a bit harder for me to tell... I bought four pullets, but... if this is a pullet, then I am more sure the others are... Seems so "leggy", "tall"?

    This GLW, pullet or cock.,
    please... ??

    Looks like a pullet to me. At that age, a cockerel should have more of the coloring pattern that the males get. Not a very big or red comb for that age either.
