I have 3-BLRW they are 8 weeks, will be 9 in a couple of days, and they have strange barred feathers. I just wondering it this is normal or if it means they are mixed with something else? Thank you for any help you can give!

They look normal. The pattern will change a bit as they mature, so you won't see correct lacing until they get their adult feathers around 4 months.

Also final quality of markings can vary alot depending on source of the birds. blrw are kind of a trendy bred rtight now so there are folks cashing in on that breeding for quantity over quality

I have 2 older Wyandottes, one silver Laced and one golden Laced... they are 12-13 weeks and their combs are just starting to grow... I am not sure if these ones are boys, but their combs are different. These ones also have fluffier and more open tail feathers lol
