Is my Silver Laced Wyandotte named Ursula really King Triton?

    Uh oh. I'm afraid Ursula might not really be a hen. S/he is 4 months old. No eggs yet and no real crowing yet, but she sure is vocalizing a lot. This is my first SLW and I'm having a hard time knowing the gender. Could anyone give me reasons why and why not for the gender? Any feedback appreciated!

    Welcome to BYC!!!
    I think she's a pullet. She doesn't have the rooster feathering. IF I'm right and she's a pullet then she should be one of the first to start laying.

    I agree with lightchick for the same reasons. She also does not have the large rooster-type comb or wattles.

    Hooray! Thank you. We really love her and were hoping to keep her in our backyard. Here's to more eggs soon.

    Pretty pullet. If you google for images of a slw cockerel or rooster, you'll see the difference in feather pattern.
