Do all silver laced wyandottes have green iridescent feathers or just the roosters?

Alot of black birds will get the beetle sheen, do you have a "girl" that your questioning? If so if you have some pictures we can help you out :3

Are they all the same breed? Does the one in question have a redder comb, wattles, face? Does it have sharper neck feathers or tail feathers?

Yes it got its comb and wattles about 2 weeks before the others and it was much redder. It still is. They are 5 weeks old and this one doesn't have tail feathers yet. I noticed the green on this one but none of the others have it..
