    He's 100% rooster. See the long pointy saddle feathers and big red comb and wattles?

    Blue Laced Red Wyandottes are so pretty! [​IMG]

    Both of your Blue Laced Red Wyandottes are roosters. But the dark red/brown colored chicken (Rhode Island Red) in the background of the first pic you posted looks like a girl! [​IMG]
