sex my wyandotte pls

so a while ago I made a post in which I expressed my disappointment that our sole Wyandotte, Daphne, was in fact obviously a cock. Here he/she is as at today:

But now that the chooks have started laying we've noticed that someone is laying something rather different to a welsummer egg. spot the odd one out....

Is it possible that Daphne is a hen? She looks exactly like every photo I can find of a wyandotte cock and I'm struggling to envisage those eggs being welsummer eggs? Chickens are confusing.

any crowing?


yep. but not much.

One thousand percent a cock.


as I thought. So that means a wyandotte cock and one of the three welsummers is laying what appear to be rhea eggs. Mad Shocked

are those big eggs doubles? you can get some odd shell colouration in the begining

try isolating him/her and see if you still get those eggs...
