Hi we got some chicks that were 2 weeks old last Friday. There are supposed to be two black Australorp and two silver laced Wyandotte but they all look alike to me which are which?

I am assuming also it’s too early to tell if they are truly pullets

Far too early, but they sure are cute! Unless you get a crow or an egg from one of them, post some more pics in a month or so and we can help more then!

The SLWs that I saw in the bins at tractor supply this year were pretty all over the place for markings. Some were almost solid black, and the 2 that I purchased are feathing in pretty awfully as far as lacing is concerned (still very black). I does look like there are no obvious wyandottes in your pictures. HOWEVER, take a look at their combs. Your australorps should have a single comb (little spikes sticking up at this age) and wyandottes *should* have a rose comb (flat comb, like the pad of your finger.) I say *should* because hatcheries commonly have single combs in their wyandottes, so it's not a sure thing.
