    I bought these two as pullets when they were a couple days old. I never even considered that they may be boys but now I look at them and that's all I see. The ones comb and wattles are much smaller than the other but both have very suspicious looking saddle feathers. Any chance I'm wrong??

    I'd have to say two roos there. Pretty wyandottes though!

    I vote they are both males, especially the top one.

    Should I wait on GLW or consider them both roos?

    Dang! I can't believe this happened! I see them everyday and it never even entered my mind to look for clues, they were girls to me. Recently I saw one of my other roos chase one away and then it hit me....is that a rooster?
    Oh geez..........

    Yes unfortunally there both roos, I know how it feels when you really want a female and you just dont get it, 8 weeks ago I hatched 5 Light Brahmas was really hoping for a pullet, cuz there just so beautiful but seems like all five are roos.
