    I bought this Silver Laced Wyandotte pullet but I am wondering if it's actually a roo. What are your thoughts?

    How old? It looks like a young cockerel to me, but thats going more by the comb colour.

    So far seems to be a pullet. The BO I bought at the same time that was supposed to be a pullet just started crowing this morning, as did the "pullet" BR I bought at the same time. Down to one.

    Well at 8 weeks I'd say pullet as well, my SLW cockerels had a much larger comb and wattles at 8 weeks, but were that size at 4 weeks...lol
