    Alright, just picked up my chickens. Wondering if they all look like hens to you? I am most concerned with the Wyandotte being a roo? I have neighbors and can't have all the noise although I would love to have one. Thanks.

    The GL Wyandotte's comb is prominent, but it's hard to tell if he/she has neck sickle feathers... Has he/she done any behavior that looks like he's thinking about trying to crow?

    How old?

    GLW's and SLW's are hard to predict, but that comb and wattles are very suspicious to me.

    Just got them yesterday so I haven't had much tiime to observer them. Don't know how old either. The guy had so many chickens, I don't even know that he could keep up. Need some more opinions out there.

    The wyandotte looks a lot like a rooster, but the rest seem to be hens. [​IMG]

    I vote that the wyandotte is a roo. The others look like hens.

    Okay, seems a little obvious from all of you that this is a rooster. I will see if I can switch it out for a hen. Do you think with this one rooster, it may not be real noisy? I have heard you are okay with one as long as you don't have multiples. Thanks
