    We recently got these three and they were labeled as Silver Laced Wyandottes but when I look at pictures online, they don't look like these. [​IMG][/IMG]

    No they're not. I'm not quite sure what they are.
    Maybe red sex links.

    That's red sexlink PULLET coloring. The males feather in solid white at first, and develop some red, as they mature. It's not until the male specific feathers come in, that they get their red.

    Yeah definitely Red Sexlink pullets. My two looked exactly like the one in the last picture. This is them at 8 weeks
