    Sort of hard to see in your pictures and I'm no chicken expert. Here's mine for comparison. These are both 12 weeks in the photo. The pullet has much more consistent lacing and a paler comb. The cockerel had full red comb and waddles and this particular fellow was crowing quite well already.

    Ok mine are 9wks old... was you rooster that obvious a month ago or did his comb & waddled develop recently?

    I usually do pretty well at sexing the chicks but the wyandottes are always hard for me

    He was redder well before and his feather patern was always different. He also crowed at 9 or 10 weeks.

    All appear to be pullets from the photos, but it is hard to see their features. Individual pictures without wire would be good.
