Anyone have pics of 6-8 week old Wyandotte they could post?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any pics of sexed L/F Wyandottes at about 6-8 weeks of age that they could post please?

 

We bought a mix of day old chicks of various breeds who are now at that age. I have only 1 partridge Wyandotte and i'm not sure about the sex. S/he walks like a pullet, but has no tail at all (which is more like a boy). We have some very dominant older boys, so it could well be boy in hiding.

 

I thought some pics of others at that sort of age might help me.

 

Thanks in anticipation

Partridge Wyandottes are very easy to sex from day 1, the colour and pattern will tell you. the females have a relatively uniform pattern of the black pencilling and the males will have some solid coloured feathers most notably on the chest, on the hackles and across their wings in a solid bar of colour

 

 

ny pics?

Hi Natalie, thank you for your reply.

 

Do these pics help? S/he wouldn't get off the swing, so I had to try and take pics around.

If not, let me know what angle would help you best.

 

Based on my interpretation of what you said about solid colouring, I'm guessing boy.

 

Thanks again.

Thanks Natalie.

 

Of tthe 5 day old I bought, the gorgeous cuckoo maran is a boy, my Wyandotte is a boy, and at least 1 of tge 2 araucana is a boy.

 

I have an Appenzeller and the other araucana still to be determined.

 

Fingers crossed.
