    This is my only BLRW, and I need to find it a new home...so I need to know if it's a roo or hen. I've never had Wyandottes before, so I am completely clueless on sexing them. [​IMG] This chick is 6 weeks old.

    IF it were a hen, I'd keep it.

    I say its a cockeral. The comb looks big and pink and those hackle feathers looks pointy. Beautiful bird.

    It's hard to tell at that stage but if I were to guess, due to the pointed hackle feathers, I'd say cockeral.

    I think it looks like a cockerel because of it's pointy hackle feathers.

    Difficult, but I'd say cockerel.
