    I have 7 Bantam Blue Wyandottes. There are 3 blue and 4 splash. I think they are ALL cockerels! 4 weeks old.
    In the first pic I made a noise to get their attention.

    Here are comb and wattle pics of Splash #1 and Splash #2.

    I think you might be right. Be interesting to follow as they grow out.

    Why do the blues have different colored legs?

    Wow, really looks like all cockerels. I agree, it'll be fun to see how they develop, but right now I don't have a lot of hope...

    I'm afraid I think they are boys as well.

    it is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to early to tell for sure on these. i have tried to sex several at this age but only for the most part failed. i have several times called pullets cockerels due to the comb and wattle development only to have a follow up on them and i was wrong. you may have all cockerels but will not know for sure till about 15 weeks of age...sorry NO guess from me on their gender till then when i can see saddle, hackle, and color development...i do think there are girls in that group but will not say until later on sorry

    I guess it is safe to assume the ones with bright red puffed out combs are cockerels???
