    Is there any way to tell if you are getting a hen or roo?? We are going to get a couple more chicks tomorrow, and we can't have a roo. We are going to get a red/blue laced Wyandotte and I want to make sure I can keep it.

    Thanks for the help and feedback! :)

    I've never had Wyandottes before but I don't think you can until they become older and features become more obvious.

    You won't be able to tell no matter what anyone says.

    Ok, I guess I'll keep my fingers crossed. :/ Thank you for letting me know.
