    I am hoping that all my pullets are pullets. From what I have read and seen on this site, I am starting to think that one is a roo. :( It is my first time owning chickens and I am hoping for only pullets. What do you think? They are about 9 weeks old. I got them from Country Junction and all but 2 of my 6 have been pecked and feathers pulled out on their backsides. :(

    Its not a great pic, but even from a distance you can see his red comb and wattles. I've never had silver laced wyandottes, but it seems from all of the pictures I've looked at that the females have nice even lacing all over, and the males have some lacing and some splotchy spots. If that makes any sense at all. My vote is yes, its a little cockerel.

    My chicken is a cockerel. He is getting his pointy saddle feathers in. I hope this picture can help others that need help trying to guess what their silver laced wyandottes will be. :)
