This is an continuation of my last post here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/th...also-warning-pic-heavy.1278249/#post-20580651

Finally got home from Europe and put my chickens outside! They all turn 12 weeks old tomorrow (they hatched on a Monday). Let me know if you'd like better pictures.

This is my BL Polish, hardly any sign of wattles but that crest is looking pretty rooster-y to me so far, plus those tail feathers. He acts like a rooster too, but no crowing.

Wyandotte #1 - All the white in this one has me concerned. Though I've heard that can happen with hatchery quality chicks. That comb also looks pretty red but the crest and wattles still look pretty small, I don't know what that horn means.

Wyandotte #2- This one's a little snot but I love her to bits.

Buckeye #1- Sorry for my finger in that pic :rolleyes:

Buckeye #2- A jerk to all chickens but really sweet with humans.

Last but not least is my WCB Polish.

Is the buff laced bearded? That would account for the lack of wattles. But I think that bird could still go either way. Check for red on the comb and face.

I agree that the others are all pullets.

Thanks for much! The hatchery said they hatch and send both bearded and non bearded. But I don't think he is, unless beards take a longer time to grow or something.
