    Am I wrong? Comb is turning red and waddles coming in. I believe it's a silver laced wyandotte. 20190826_122058.jpg 20190826_122043.jpg 20190826_121906.jpg 20190826_122032.jpg

    Chances are good that's a cockerel. But it still kinda early to say for sure.

    It is a silver laced Wyandotte, but it's still too young to tell for sure if it's a cockerel or pullet yet. If you can post more pictures in a few weeks it should be easier to tell :)

    I can't have another rooster, so if it's a cockerel, I will most likely have to rehome. We shall see how it turns out!!

    Or maybe caponize him and have toothsome dinner later or keep him as a yard art or use him to brood chicks you hatch. I suppose there are few people who wants to adopt extra cockerels. 'Rehoming' is not a sustainable solution to the cockerel problem. Just saying.
