    I have two Wyandotte's 13 weeks old, I want to know if they are Roo's or Hens. I think out of all my chickens I have more Roo's than I need. [​IMG]

    Better pictures of their bodies would also help.

    I think the first one is a hen and the second one a rooster.

    Yep, sorry.. looks like a cockerel to me too. I have 2 welsummer cockerels who are 8 weeks old and they are not crowing yet.

    eta: I didn't realize there were two birds. The second one is the one I was guessing was a cockerel. The first one .. um.. not sure.
