    Help I need it urgently I have had 8 chicks and I am concerned about 4 of them which are GL Wyandottes
    My family keep saying that the chick is a boy but the 3 others have hardly and gold and heaps of black. The one I am concerned about has heaps of gold and is very adventurous and apparently sounds a bit strange like a dog toy says my sister. The boy has a larger comb and it is a pinky colour.

    This is the chick I am talking about......

    I am okay with having a boy but I just want to know!!!

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] I'm afraid I can't tell from those pics. Maybe someone will come along later that can. Otherwise wait a little, a week or 2 and post a nice clear head shot in the What Breed Or Gender is This? section. It's a beautiful chick though. I think it's going to be lovely when it's grown up, hen or roo.

    Hello, Welcome to BYC! It's just a little too early to tell. As sumi suggested, try waiting a while longer then post in the What Breed Or Gender is This?
