Silver laced wyandotte or not? - Page 2

post #11 of 14

Wait a few more weeks to be absolutely sure, and then call them and let them know exactly how many of those sexed pullets turned out to be cockerels. You've got quite a few. They really do owe you a refund. 

That's appalling that a big hatchery would be so off on both breed/variety AND gender.

Man! I was hoping that because they all looked very simalr that they were all pullets not that they are all roos! I really hope they are just early bloomers. The hatchery will not like me if they are mostly roos. Scares me bc I have 7 leghorns too. I looked at them today. So far no pink combs. I was doing some research could the funny patterned one be a barred wyandotte?

That's not barring. It's juvenile patridge type patterning with a silver base. That chick is likely to look similar to a Dark Brahma or Silver Penciled Rock.

I don't mind having different colored birds. I have 7 different breeds in my flock j tentioy for variety but when I pay good money for a specific breed that is what I expect to get. Not two birds the wrong color and one with the wrong comb. These guys are welcome to stay in my flock but that hatchery will get my piece of mind especially if I have as many roos as it appears I do.
