    I have a Bantam Buttercup and a Bantam Blue Laced Red Wyandotte. They are both 3 1/2 weeks old.
    I've heard Buttercups can be sexed by their color. Both of these are feathering in slowly. I have another
    Bantam Wyandotte that I think is a girl and she has a lot more feathers.
    I need your best guesses because I need to get rid of all my cockerels tomorrow.

    Thanks. Is it usual for Wyandotte pullets feather in that slow?
