    I have four chicks. My two Wyandottes are 7 1/2 weeks old. The golden laced one has a single comb which seems weird. Also can't tell if it is a roo or a hen. :D Opinions please

    Pullet. Straight combs are actually recessive and can hide in lines of rose combed birds like Wyandottes then pop up at random matings. You could not show her with that comb, but as far as a backyard bird she's a keeper [​IMG]

    It does make it easy to tell who is who, doesn't it?
