    We have never raised the Wyandotts before and are having a hard time telling what they are any thoughts on these I sometime think they are all roosters

    From the what we have seen and read, Wyandottes can mature late and really are tricky to pick a gender. How old are they? Love the color of your SLW's!

    They are approximately 12 weeks old. Can't remember exactly when they hatched.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and say .......... that looks like a whole lot of pullets to me.

    I really want some more SLW's !!! I love their bold coloring.

    I don't see a rooster. Maybe I am wrong, but at 12 weeks old there should be some 'rooster feathers' coming in on the back, neck, and tail.
