    I have these Golden laced wyandottes I'm told and wondered if they are pullets or roos. I can't have roos and wondered which ones I need to keep an eye on.

    I could be wrong, but at least the first three look like roos to me. The third one, I can't tell, as the picture isn't very helpful. They're just beautiful.

    How old are your chicks?

    I cannot see the combs and wattles in all photos but Wyandottes are known for pinking up early and developing combs that can make you think you have boys. I would wait at least a couple weeks to be sure.

    I'm thinking that at least three are pullets but you definitely need to wait longer to be sure. I wouldn't get rid of any yet.

    They're not screing male to me. They are a bit younger than I expected but only a week or maybe two.
    I would give them longer.

    Were they sexed chicks?
