5 week old Wyandotte batch

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I got a batch of Wyandottes about 5 weeks ago.  In that time I've done a lot of research as to what breed/gender the birds are.  I think there are 2 Barred Rock (pic 4), 2 Gold Laced Wyandottes (pic 2 and 6) and 6 unknown Wyandottes I originally thought were Silver Laced Wyandottes, but have since grown gold feathers.  There are also 3 different combs for some reason.  Any help would be great.

1) Unknown with yellow comb

2) Gold Laced

3) Unknown with larger and red comb and waddle.

4) One of the two Barred Rocks

5)

6) One of the unknowns (left) and a Gold Laced (right)

I think you have all GLW and your 2 Barred Rocks, though could you get a better picture of the last two in #6? Also #3 and #1 maybe cockerels.

Sure.  Hopefully these are more helpful.

1)

2) Closer view of a GLW

3) These are the two from picture 6.  The one on the left has more black feathers and started out with white fluff, which had me confused.

4) You mentioned the possibility of roosters.  I was thinking both of the BR's were rooster. (below)

They are to young to guess the gender for sure but the Barred Rocks definitely look like cockerels, also the GLW in #3 to the left looks cockerelish. I would wait until they grow more and post again.
