    Quote:This is a rose comb and they don't get much bigger then this. You can't go by size of combs when your sexing, you go by color. You could have a pullet with a huge comb, but if it isn't pinking up before 6-8 weeks of age, than its a pullet. These are roosters. Just a little FYI :)

    Haha, I thought so! Before I posted that I kept going back and forth between pea comb and rose comb. Thank you for correcting me, much appreciated :)

    I'm afraid they all look like cockerels to me too. Having pink combs and wattle development at that young age, it's not a good sign unless you are wanting them to be roosters.

    AH! I'm so confused lol they are either all cockerels or all pullets lol I keep getting mixed answers. They all look almost identical so whatever they are i'm betting they are all the same sex lol. I'm so confused!

    Post more photos in a week or two. It's not unusual to get mixed responses. They do look like pullets to me though... And for what it's worth, I hatch and raise a lot of wyandottes. :)
