    Ok, I just got these 2 today. Supposedly 2 silver laced wyandotte pullets.

    I am thinking Barred Rock, 1 roo and 1 pullet?

    Please help... I think that they are Barred Rock which isn't an issue. Another roo will be an issue. I already have 3 :-(

    They look just like my Barred Rock. Sorry, can't help with the pullet or roo question.

    Barred Rocks tend to have yellow legs, they look more like Cuckoo Marans to me. Thats a weird mix up though because Barred chicks and Silver Laced Wyandotte chicks look totally different. How old are they?

    I was totally guessing with the Barred Rock. Yep they could be Chuckoo Manans!

    looks a lot like my cuckoo, hard to compare size with a picture though. Mine is about the same age also but not small compared to others I have. My gentle giant...[​IMG][​IMG]

    That seems very small for 3 1/2 months. I would say maybe 2 months old for those two.

    For size they are standing by a 32oz small waterer...

    mine looks a bigger compared to that waterer. I agree that they could be younger. Or maybe I just spoil my flock way to much. Especially with all the fresh trout from these Montana rivers. Just wait and you will get some nice chocolate brown eggs soon enough. God willing that is....
