    What gender is this Wyandotte. I can't tell. I am almost positive, except that she is over 20 weeks old.

    Looks like a pullet to me. If she's about 20 weeks, she'll probably start laying in 4 weeks or less.

    I have a nice group of these as well. Blue-laced red. You definitely have a pullet there. Here's a pic of one of my girls about the same age.

    And here are a pair of bantams about there as well. These were culls for lack of substantial lacing but you can see the secondary sex characteristics clearly even at this age. All the cockerels have nice large and red combs and wattles with nice long saddle feathers while the ladies remain nearly comb free and what they do have is very pale still.
