    We had a Silver Laced Wyandotte that turned out to be a rooster so we took him back and got another one along with 2 other chicks of different breeds. She is displaying the ssme behaviors as the rooster and we are wondering if we ended up with another. He/she is 9 1/2 weeks old.
    I was going to post a picture but haven't figured out how.

    That looks like a roo to me. A lot of comb and wattle for a 9 1/2 week old. Sorry :(

    Thank you for the input. Too bad we can't decrow him. We would love to keep a rooster but can't have one here.

    Given the size and redness of the comb and wattles at 9 1/2 weeks, I agree with dan26552 that you have a cockerel. Sorry. :eek:(
