    OK, My GL Wyandottes.
    Here's my Jan. Sure she's a hen.

    This is Marcia, a hen I believe as well.

    These next two are of Krystle-
    he /she has teeny spur bumps- same as the others. A slightly different tail. Same hackles, saddles?-not really. No crowing either. They are all 15-16 weeks. Krystle doesn't appear to exhibit any roo behavior and is very much one of the mix, not the leader.

    The gal I bought them from said she'd "fix it", but at this stage, I don't really want to add to the flock and cause disturbance.

    Krystle is a Kristopher. Nice addition to a flock if you are allowed roos [​IMG]

    The first two look like hens for sure, and the third looks very much like a cockerel. His comb is bigger and look at the tail, it's iridescent and bit longer.

    I can't keep him. We're very sad and now nave the conundrum of trying to introduce a new member to the flock.[​IMG]
