You might be right . Did not realise 2 black birds , thought it was the same bird and the first is definately male. I think the last photo on relooking is a pullet :wink:
These :wink: blacks , have great leg colour which is difficult to find in most blacks and blues.
I will comment too that you birds are in excellent condition

That's the funny thing with Wyandottes.
They are the Poddle of the chook world.
Very girly until they crow. I have been wrong a lot of times with my own, but that red comb look's the goods.
