New to the chicken raising game...not sure if I've got a chicken or a rooster?

    Hello,


    I'm new to chicken raising and boy oh boy is it addicting! I have 4 six week old hens (hopefully) that are finally outside happy and healthy! My Silver Laced Wyandotte is looking rather roostery and I was hoping to gain some insight from veteran chicken raisers as to whether its a pullet or a roo!? What does everyone think?[​IMG]

    The wyandotte looks like a pullet to me, but s/he is still a bit young. Give it a couple of weeks and they should literally, start to show their true colors via wattles and comb starting to turn a deeper pink/red if it's a roo...
