    Can you give me some clues with my Wyandottes? I was convinced I was in the clear when one of my EE's cock-a-doodle-doo'd Wednesday morning. I cant have roosters and I'd rather know before that happens again. At 5 months will there be sharp distinctions between a Wyandotte pullet & rooster?

    Thanks!

    Phew! Thanks! The one in the first picture kept ruffling her feathers at me while I was taking the pictures & I was getting pretty nervous that I might have another boy.

    Girl colors.
    edited to add, if you're not getting eggs already, you will soon! Or you might want to go on an egg hunt in your yard?

    Thank you for posting those pics. I was giving 3 hens like those b&w ones. And I thought they were Wyandottes and now I know they are. Thanks again!
