    Six weeks and 2 days.
    Any guesses? They are suppose to be pullets.
    Do the different markings mean anything?

    #1 and #2 together

    Beautiful birds! I raised 6 Silver Laced until they were old enough to patrol our co-op garden. We had no hoppers and now have 6 lovely, hearty birds!

    You know i didn't notice the comb difference until I was posting the pics. I thought all wyandots had rose combs. They are hatchery stock though. Is there a relationship between comb type and sex?

    No, no relationship between comb types and sex. It's just a hatchery stock defect -- my SLW hen has a single comb.

    I can't see anything that screams roo yet, so I'm thinking both are pullets.

    Chickee, can you tell why you think #1 is a roo. Maybe I can learn something.
