    She looks more like a he. Do you know if he's bantam or standard?

    Wyandottes are a heavy breed. They get pretty big - mine are not quite as big as my Buff orps, but are the largest chickens out there otherwise.

    From MeyerHatchery.com: :

    Average mature weights: roosters 8 1/2 lbs.; hens 6 1/2 lbs.

    Here's a couple of pictures of my BLRW roos. They're about 19 or 20" tall. Yours looks like a roo. [​IMG][​IMG]
