    They are both 5 1/2 weeks Silver Laced Wyandottes, but they look so different so can someone tell me the sex of them?

    What does the standing do to help sex them? Just wondering because I bought a few of this breed today.

    They both look like pullets to me, but I do not claim to be an expert.

    Quote:A couple things in a pic of a young chicken standing can give a roo away. Thicker longer legs and the start of pointed saddle feathers for starters. Also, sometimes you can also notice a difference in the way they hold their tail feathers when standing.
    I think you may have a pullet and a cockerel but I'd like to see standing pics also.

    I think so too. The one on the bottom looks like it's maybe showing roo hackle feathers and less lacing, but the pic taken from above makes it hard.​
