    Hello my name is Phillips I've been raising chickens for about two years now in Florida. I just recently got some new chick's and was wondering if I got a rooster. Any help would be appreciated.[​IMG]

    :welcome Phillip!
    Your Golden Laced Wyandotte(?) does indeed look suspicious, but it's hen-feathered still, so...
    How old are they? 8 or 9 weeks? Is there any way you could post an entire picture of the Golden's body?

    I'm going to say almost definitely a cockerel. The massive legs tip it off. He'll get sickle feathers within a couple weeks, right around the time he starts crowing...
    He's a handsome roo, that's for sure!

    Yes he, I guess, is a golden laced wyandotte. And thank you he is a strapping young lad. I'm pretty excited he's a he. Never raised a rooster before

    G’Day from down under Phillip [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received links to some good starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share more pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
