    I got an assortment of 8 female chicks from mypetchicken, and two male Cochins. One of the Wyandottes looks like a boy, and one of the Cochins looks like a girl! Please tell me I’m wrong
    They are young so time will tell, but comb development is making me second guess their gender..first two are “boys” second two are “girls” (one gold lace, one silver) 0F582D55-1B2D-459A-9A1D-1B898AEB40BF.jpeg 25DAC74E-9E8B-4D74-9519-D708095C1A5A.jpeg EE8816E4-485D-435A-8D52-88F39566F299.jpeg C17ABA98-54F2-4860-9E94-51E3E8303B5B.jpeg

    How old are they? Vent sexing chicks isn’t 100% accurate.

    It does appear that you have a pair of Cochins and a pair of Wyandottes.

    I would agree although 4 weeks is a bit early to tell and wyandottes are notorious for looking pink early and then never growing out

    I don’t have any experience with Wyandottes.
