    I personally think it's a bit too early to know for sure. [​IMG] Updated pictures in a couple of weeks would be very helpful! [​IMG]

    Way too early. Would like to see new photos when they are 8 weeks old.

    Yep, much to young yet. 8 week old pictures would be best. Wyandottes can be harder to tell when they are young. Watch for the big white bars on the shoulder feathers. This will indicate males.

    UPDATE! Here they are at 6 weeks. I'm pretty sure I have 3 cockerels and 2 pullets. Can you guys confirm?

    Thank you. I started seeing signs at about 4 weeks with the red combs and leg size. Now the hackle feathers are coming out as well
