    Hi all,
    I've got a couple 12 week old hatchery Silver Laced Wyandottes that I think are probably cockerels. I gave one that looked similar away last week and the new owner thinks it might be a pullet. This is making me wonder about the two I have left. I'm thinking the tail on the first bird makes it most likely a cockerel. But the comb and wattles are more red in the second bird. The second bird is smaller. Thanks very much for your input.

    Thanks all for letting me know. I can give one away this afternoon now without second guessing the gender.
