    I got these chicks and was told they would be hens. They turned 6 weeks old on the 8th of this month. They are already getting wattles does this spell out that I have roos?
    Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    Can't tell ya on the other one, but wait a bit on the SLW. My female SLW had a pink comb at three DAYS old and also had wattles by three weeks. She's definitely a lady. Folks on here told me wyandottes could be quirky that way. They never got any bigger, just pinked up early - if they start getting bigger it's probably a roo. [​IMG]

    the last bird looks a bit comb-y, but the others are girls.
