    As some of you may know I got 4 BLRW Bantams and was hoping for at least 2 girls... Well I've come to face the facts that they may in fact be ALL boys. So here is the last one... I'm still holding out hope that it is a girl. It has smaller combs and wattles, and they are more pink rather than red like the other 3. Also, he/she seems daintier and doesn't engage in the roughhousing like the other 3... I hope she is a girl... [​IMG]

    ETA; She is 10 weeks old.

    Can you post pics of all of them (individually) for comparison? I am leaning towards pullet as well....I had to wait until they started to crow before I could sex my bantam BLRW. LOL

    This is the Blue that I am pretty positive is a boy. I think about 7 or 8 weeks old here...

    looking very feminine in the face but i have had my share of roos pop up when they are that pink at 10 weeks. comparison pics could help too. also, do the legs look very thick compared to the others you have? sometimes stocky, thick legs are an indicator that it could end up being a roo.

    My opinion is that it's a hen. This goes without saying I have no expirence with the breed... but it looks henish to me.

    Unfortunately it seems all my Wyandottes legs look about the same.​

    I vote pullet. But I stink at this game, so take that at face value. [​IMG]
