Well I sadly re homed my black jersey giant roo and so I went and got 2 five week old chicks on friday to coop up with my 9 week old buff orpington so she wouldn't be lonely. 1 is a buff orpington and 1 is a silver laced wyandotte. My son just picked up the first one he could get out of the bin and we are hoping she is not a he. This is my forst experience with chickens and I am exhausted and sad from having to deal with all the roos we have gotten and had to find homes for. We still have 1 possible roo who is 11 weeks today and he is the sweetest chicken... so far. We can't have 2 roosters so if this little one is a roo he will have to go back to the feed store asap. They guaranteed her to be a hen and said they would take her back if she turned out to be roo. Any guesses on gender so far? Also her coloring is very dark and I am wondering if this is normal for a SLW and if anyone has any pictures of their SLW looking like this as a chick and what they look like now. I tried to find a SLW thread on the "Breed" Index to see if there was a group posting pictures and discussing the breed, but no such luck Thanks!!
