    Everyone well I have 4 wyandotte chicks. I cant keep roos so Im trying to tell if these are pullets. So I figured I would ask you. They are 3 months old I believe... [​IMG]

    Wyandottes are hard because they dont have such a big comb.....

    Males and females will both have spur bumps, so that doesn't mean much. How old are the chicks in question? Any chance you can include some full body shots?

    Hi there, I'd say the one in the first two closeups is a boy. In your full body shot, I'd say the guy in the middle and the closest one are likely boys. The other two look like pullets.

    My BLRW pullet is six months old and shows less comb than the likely cockerels. Beautiful birdies - good luck!

    I have 2 that started off looking just like yours and are pullets. The BLRW combs turn real fast but I am 100% positive my girls are girls. Yours look just like mine did but all you can really do is wait it out.

    I would say the ones already showing their wattles would be boys... My girls are just 6 months and have only just grown theirs wattles and combs in the last month... looks to me like you have half and half there.
