    I just picked up my two new and adorable little wyandotte chicks today. One is Silver Laced, the other was labeled as "Red Laced." Im confused about this because all i have seen so far are Blue Laced Red, or Gold Laced. Is there a red laced color, or is it just gold laced? Here are a few pics, if anyone knows what color this little red one truly is i would appreciate the feed back. Thanks!

    They look like little soldiers standing in the one pick. Looks like you may have a pair there!

    they are supposed to both be guaranteed females. But that first pic is one of my favorites

    Hard to tell from the angles, but with the pattern gened birds the females have white stripes running down next to the big dark spot on the middle of the back. ie from the center dark spot, then white line, then usually a lighter version of the center color stripe. If you look straight down from the top you'll see what i mean. Good luck, they look like nice fat healthy chicks!
