    Around 12 - 14 weeks we think - the breeder was a little vague

    Thanks for the feedback. I've attached a couple more pictures, they might show a different perspective?

    Still looks like a pullet. By now, if it were a roo you would see a lot more red in the comb and wattle development.

    I agree female, but like your Rock, a Wyandotte should have yellow legs. Makes me wonder if this "breeder" put some Sussex in along the line.

    Very definitely the wrong leg color on this one for a Wyandotte, but all else says Wyandotte pullet
