    4 weeks old, Silver Laced Wyandottes. I’m having a real hard time guessing sex of these. Pullets or Cockerels?

    Okay, I will wait longer. I also have 4 Blue Laced Red Wyandottes, and they seem much easier to sex. I think 2 of them are Cockerels and 2 Pullets.

    These SLW seem much harder to sex. I will say they feathered at about the same rate, while the Blue laced reds did not. I feel the 2 That feathered slower on the blues, clearly have bigger redder combs and some roo behavior.
