Hi Chicken Experts!

I'm a newbie who's hatched out four Gold partridge Bantams (definitely 3 roos and only one hen.. sob... If any one wants gorgeous little roos, please get in touch..)

And also 2 SL wyandottes - they're 9 weeks old and I'm desperate to know their gender. One is larger and seems more 'roostery', slightly thicker legs, more developed tail feathers and redder comb, as well as being very dominant.

Thank you!

Both are pullets so far :)

I took a second look, and the one you are unsure about looks to be a pullet right now. My girl was just as developed at that age. However, I am not 100% sure.

When my Wyandottes were that age the roos had larger combs, much thicker legs and their lacing wasn't nearly as prominent as the girls. Yours both look like pretty little girls to me

Oh my goodness, you guys are making me very happy! Thank you all very much for your input.. That's wonderful news... I was so worried that they would all turn out to be roos! Fingers crossed....
