    I bought 7 black laced Wyandotte pullets 9 weeks ago. This one looks different from the rest. Do you think it is a rooster?[​IMG]

    [​IMG] so sad. When we picked up our chicks from the store, the lady had a hard time finding which ones were mine. Now I wonder if I was given someone else's chick.

    I doubt it. Sexing is only 90% accurate, so everyone gets an Oops now and then.
