    Can you get a few picks with the others for a side-by-side comparison?

    To me, looks like a pullet. Combs not all that impressive if it's a cockerel especially as feathered as it is, but maybe having pics side-by-side of the others would help? The robust red comb and growth may just mean it's healthy and doing very well.

    It might help, scarlett456, if you tell us their ages. While the amount of pink in the comb looks perhaps cockerel-like, if the bird is 6 weeks old on it could still be a pullet.

    Apart from the blush of pink in the comb, I can't see anything too suspicious, but of course it all depends on age.

    Best wishes,
    Erica

    Hi [​IMG]
    I hatched 3 Blue Laced Red Wyandottes all three pullets. They look like yours [​IMG] I bet yours is a pullet. I will take a pic of Cinymon and Lacie and Gilda today so you can compare. They are some of my favorites! They are so cuddly [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    95% sure you have a pullet there. I have a SLW and he looks like this at 6 weeks.
