    I got this one from a breeder guaranteed girl or it goes back and they replace it.
    5 1/2 weeks I got it when it was 3 weeks old. . I am new to this breed. I figure it's a girl but thought I would ask since waddles just popped out a little but are not red.

    A little young to sex accurately. Wyandottes are a little tougher than other breeds till they are around 7-8 weeks. But it looks like a pullet to me.

    I was worried about the tail but I am reading that may not make a difference.

    I have (4) 16 week old SLW's and I believe yours is a pullet.
    Very cute! Keep an eye on the comb, as SLW's should have a rose comb.
    I have 2 w/ correct rose comb and 2w/straight comb.

    Looks like a rose comb. Thanks for the feedback. She is a wild one. My 13 year old son just loves her. She loves to fly.
