    I don't see any worth worrying about yet. It's really best to wait until they are 7-8 weeks old to sex wyandottes. None look particularly masculine yet.

    I would have sworn one of my pullets looked was a roo at this age. Too early to tell.

    I swear, they go through a phase at 4-5 weeks old where most look male. Every single time I hatch wyandottes, they get to that age and I start thinking that I ended up with 80% being cockerels. By 6-8 weeks, the differences are more apparent and I realize that the ratio is much closer to 50/50.

    The first 3 images are of my little possible guy now at about 8 1/2 weeks.
