    In May I already had three Wyandotte chicks: one rooster and two hens. After 4 weeks or so, I could clearly see that one of them would turn out to be a rooster. He already showed a bigger and bright red comb, whereas the other two had a narrower and pale comb. The rooster is now about 11 weeks and has been crowing for some time already. This bunch of chicks today just seem more difficult to determine. I guess I'm the impatient type.

    So, now my chicks are 8 weeks old. Anyone who'd like to give it a try? Pullets or cockerels? Some have become obvious, others are still difficult for me to see.

    I don't know what gender they are, just wanted to ask because you have rare colors of wyandottes, where did you get them from?

    They are uncommon here in Belgium, not the rarest. I'm also into buff barred and cuckoo partridge. They are much rarer.

    Any thoughts on the latest pictures? Gender? I have my ideas, but I could obviously learn from you.

    the barred I'm pretty sure is a hen because it looks darker than a rooster would but the others the ones with yellow combs are hens the reddish combs not sure
