Silver Laced Wyandotte hen or rooster? - Page 2

post #11 of 23

Not to piggyback but I have the same question about my silver laced. He/she looks very similar and I've noticed he/she's grown some iridescent tail feathers. Anyone know if Silver Laced Hens get iridescent tail feathers or if that's a roo thing?

Chill!  Not many chickens like a camera in their face.  Mine certainly don't  barnie  The poster might want to have a roo around to keep the peace with the hens or to make babies next year.

Definitely roo.  My girls are 18 weeks and don't have combs or wattles that big and red.

For all who say roo, what about the fact that there does not appear to be any pointed saddle feathers? They all look rounded like a pullet to me.

It gets so confusing when the signs are mixed... hmm

if it is helpful, I posted some pics of my SLW on my "meet the flock" page. I think they are both hens after some research. They would be much more roostery by now I understand. Plus the fluffy feathers on the butt are a hen trait, is that right?

I am new to this, but HTH!

12 weeks is a bit early to be showing saddle feathers.  All the white that is on him and the red comb is a sure sign of a cockerel/rooster.
