    Hi there! I am new to this site and new to raising chickens! On July 5th, I bought 8 chickens from a woman who said that they were 3 to 6 months old. I think I have some roosters! Can anyone tell me about how old these Wyandottes are and if they are roos? Thanks[​IMG][​IMG]

    The pictures are too far away to make any kind of guess. If you can post pics of each individual bird, front/head and full body/side shot.

    I think your right. Both of those Wyandottes look like cockerels.

    They look like roosters to me and I just got two silver laced wynndotte roosters this year.

    Both of them are cockerals no doubt. You can see hackle/saddle feathers. Enlarged comb+waddles and big tail feathers.

    Both cockerels, and I'd say 4-5ish months

    Yep - along with pretty blatant "roo" coloring for SLWs

    Thanks everyone! I got so excited when their combs and waddles started getting bigger and redder that they would start laying soon, but I guess that won't be happening! I may keep one, since I only have 12 chickens!
