    This is my Golden Laced Wyandotte. I think she's about a month old. We bought sexed chicks, so she's supposed to be a pullet, but now I'm thinking maybe she's a rooster. I have a Colombian Rock Cross who is about the same age, and she doesn't have the same crest.

    Can anybody help me out?

    Thanks for your responses. Would that explain why "she" is kind of a jerk? I guess we'll be switching her.
