    This is my sister's chick about 9 weeks old. It's a Gold Laced Wyandotte and when she bought them, they were supposed to be all hens, but this one has a bigger comb and waddles below than her other chicks. She doesn't have another one of this breed to compare to though. How often are they wrong when sexing?

    Definitely a cockerel.

    With Wyandottes, vent sexing is 95-98% accurate.

    I'm in the opposite boat, wanting to know what a 9 week old GLW cockerel would look like so thank you for posting a great picture!

    Here are 2 pullets at 9 weeks for reference:
