    Any guesses on sex for these 3 ? They are around 4 months old.

    I'm leaning towards both being cockerels, but both Wyandottes and Barnevelders can be somewhat tricky to sex.

    No saddle or hackle feathers on the Wyandottes so I am guessing they are pullets, not sure on the Barnevelder but by the way it carries it's tail I am guessing cockerel???

    The Wyandottes look like pullets to me. I'm not sure on the Barnavelder. I can't see any saddle feathers on it, but it looks rather cockerel-ish.

    I have to agree that the Wyandottes both are pullets. The Barnavelder looks to have rounded saddle feathers, and that comb is samll, so I would have to say pullet.

    Pretty birds! The barnevelder is looking boyish to me due to long and point sickle feathers plus the large comb. The rest are pullets.

    Thanks. The barnavelder still confuses me. It stands and acts like a cockerel but feather wise it looks like a pullet. Guess time will tell.
