    Hello hive mind!
    I have 4 young Wyandottes that I would love to get a better sense of gender. They were all bought as pullets but it was from a feed store so....


    Pullet 1(Blue laced wyandotte ~4 weeks old):

    its a little early, usually its best to determine gender about 6-8 weeks, but at this point I don't see any early cockerels.
    Keep in mind, with that rose comb, wyandottes are harder to determine, and you often have to wait longer to figure it out for sure.

    If you can post pictures in a few weeks will be able to tell sex for sure, but they look like all pullets. Good luck!!

    The easiest way to tell (for any laced wyandottes) is the pullets will get laced shoulder feathers while the roosters will have solid color.

    I have some Silver Wyandottes that I'm waiting to see what they will turn out to be! It's so hard to tell, the first two pictures are the same bird. Approx 5 weeks I think they were almost a week when we got them. Any guesses? Wyand1.jpg Wyand3.jpg Wyand2.jpg

    Thanks everyone! I know it is still a guessing game so I appreciate the tries. I will post more pics in a few weeks. I just bought a second round of little cotton ball BLR just in case I get any cockrels.
