    tytt- too young to tell. Usually i'd say that much wattle development that early probably indicated cockerel, but Wyandottes tend to develop that trait early. It's best to wait until they are feathered out.

    Three weeks old. I was wondering can you tell the gender by behavior? One of my polish chick and this one along with one other Wyandotte chick always bump there chests together and throw there legs up like they are imitating roosters fighting. The rest of the chicks don’t do this only those three.

    It may be just a pecking order (starting up) dominance thing. Photos at 8 weeks of age when they are fully feathered out would be best.
