I hatched some WCBP 10 weeks ago. The first week I could tell their sex by the shape of their crest, now I can't. Half have huge wattles and half don't. Crest look mostly the same. Any ideas which is which? I need to thin them out. Thanks for any advice.

Hi there :frow

The shape of the crest at hatch can only be guess work. I've had plenty that I thought would be female only to turn and male and vice versa. White crested black can be hard to sex on the wattles as the hens also have quite large wattles compared to other colours of polish. I would say the ones with the largest wattles at this age would be males.
Could you post some pics of your birds please?

The ones with the huge wattles are trying to crow now. Now I have to figure out what the americuanas are. Thanks.
