    I will be getting 4 Wyandotte pullets (hopefully) this Tuesday. I am getting two Blue Laced Reds and two Blues. They are around 2 and 1/2 months old. Can ANY Wyandotte people post pictures of Pullets and Cockerels around 2-3 months old? If you happen to have BLRW or Blue Wyandottes please post those. I am desperately hoping I won't be given a bunch of boys lol, and would like to know what to look for. I have never seen Wyandottes around that age.

    Looking for: Wyandotte Pictures (ANY color but I am getting above named colors) of COCKEREL and/OR PULLETS around 2-3 months old! Please do respond here ASAP with pictures! Thanks!

    Thank you for the pictures! Would a 2 1/2 month old wyandotte pullet have red comb/wattles as well as the cockerels? Are there any tell tale signs? Thanks a ton for any help offered! I am so excited to experience a different breed [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My girls didn't develop the red comb and wattles (they were there, just small) until fairly recently. They seemed to develop later than the males. IMO If yours have very red wattles and combs by 10 weeks more likely a male. I'm not an expert though. [​IMG]

    Kk no problem. I don't have them yet [​IMG] getting my BLRW girls on Tuesday, hopefully girls.. I am getting 4 though in case one or more is a rooster, but I sure wish I knew what to look for lol!

    As soon as I get them I will post pictures [​IMG] Their age is a total guess though, which kinda is harder, but ah well. The lady said she thinks they are around 2 1/2 months old. We'll see heh [​IMG]

    Those pictures are VERY helpful! Keep them coming if you have them! I am going to try and take a gander when I meet up with the lady as to who is what. She has about 10 she is rehoming, I am getting 4. Thanks a ton and anybody else who has pictures of various Wyandottes (label which is pullet which is cockerel if you can) thanks a ton! [​IMG]
