    Silver Laced Wyandotte - Hatchery - 5.5 weeks old.
    This is my first SLW, and her tail feathers look so BIG compared to my other breeds.
    Any thoughts on whether she/he is pullet or roo?
    Thank you!

    I have golden-laced wyandottes, and my 15+ week old girls don't have a comb that big. I think I'd lean cockerel on that little cutie-pie.

    I'm thinking that's a cockerel, the comb is reddening and the wattles are forming. I think I see pointy hackles (at the base of the neck) and the rooster sickle feathers look like they are coming in.

    This is what I get for naming her/him Sybil. Symon will be her boy name.

    Is this a rooster or a hen?

    It is a hen. It is hard to tell in the pic but the comb is yellow.

    So, if the top part is wide and dark pinkish or red their roos? If that's the case all 4 of mine are roos..Guess I'd better get some pictures on here and see what you all think....sigh...and the SLWs are the friendliest of my 8. 4 others being Australorps...I take one of them out and he/she rests on my chest and sometimes almost falls asleep with me petting/scratching him/her...
