    I picked up a colombian wyandotte chick earlier this summer to add to my mixed flock. At the time, I was told she should be a pullet, although I know it's pretty tough to really know that early on. The other chick I got at the time I'm confident IS actually a pullet (black and copper maran), but I'm starting to have my doubts on the wyandotte. S/he is almost 14 weeks old, very leggy, and I think those are saddle feathers coming in.... thoughts?[​IMG]

    I also think cockerel. Can we see the comb to confirm?

    [​IMG] here is a better updated picture. I too am leaning more towards Cockerel as his tail feathers are coming in different than my girls. Granted they are other breeds but still

    Cockerel. He has nice saddle feathers coming in.
