    It is about 4 weeks old and either a Blue Wyandotte or a Blue Lace Red. Any ideas about the sex or which Wyandotte it might turn out to be?
    Many thanks!

    Too young to tell. Wait a few weeks, and post again.

    Shoot, I was hoping there was a way to guess the sex ,with some degree of accuracy. It is a little over 4 weeks and, so far, no comb development. I can try again in few weeks. Of course we're in the city so no roos allowed.

    I have four wyandottes that are about 3 1/2 months old. They should all be pullets and so far I have seen very little wattle/comb development. They are starting to get a little more red in the face but still some weeks away from laying. If yours starts to develop large wattles or a larger comb (theirs are still pretty flat) earlier than that you have a boy. I would check again at 8 weeks. Good luck! [​IMG] for a girl!

    Pictures at 6+ weeks

    Here's my chick at 6 weeks now. Can we tell if she's a she yet? She's a blue/spash laced red Wyandotte.

    At six weeks, she looks pretty girly to me. I wouldn't bet the whole farm on it... maybe an acre or two. [​IMG]

    Yeah, I wouldn't put huge bets on it or anything, but it sure looks like a girl to me!
