G'day y'all. My little chickadees are now 10 - 12 weeks old and one is trying to crow. He shuts up when I try to spy. This gold laced is 'Rhonda'

This silver laced is 'Gilligan' and he-she is camera shy and always manages to turn it's head away just as I click

Not anymore, that's Ronny now
He has followed the quintessential typical 'female' wyandotte maturity markers - first and fastest to feather up, quick to develop wattles and go red. He's 2 weeks younger than 'Gilligan' and 'Patricia' and his wattles are much larger.

Why would those make him female? Wouldn't they be signs of a boy? This much wattle and comb at 12 weeks is a definite boy.
