    Comb development and redness at 10 weeks plus the body stance, and the fact that there is only patterning across the wings suggests roo to me, but wait and watch to see if more patterning develops.

    However, are you sure that is a Gold Laced Wyandotte? It doesn't look right to me to be for that but maybe a mix with it...or is that what you meant by Wyandottegolden?

    Here's some photos of GLW females and roos on another thread:

    My 2 cents,

    I agree, it's a rooster but not gold laced. Maybe partridge?

    Yea, I wondered about partridge as well. Isn't quite right for that yet either, but it looks closer to a partridge wyandotte than a GLW.

    Looks like a dark cornish rooster to me, think I see a pea comb and not a rose.

    I agree, I think this is a dark Cornish rooster. No way that's a gold-laced Wyandotte. He even has the hard feathering of a Cornish, and that "look" Cornish have--like they're going to kill you. [​IMG]

    The other bird walking away in the first photo is a dark Cornish, too. Here's one of my dark Cornish hens for comparison for you (I've had both dark Cornish and GLW, and the differences are very clear):

    He's a Dark Cornish Rooster, not a Golden-Laced Wyandotte. The stance, comb, coloring, and body shape, are wrong for a Golden-Laced Wyandotte.

    I didn't even think of a Cornish! Thank you!
