I’ve got three gold laced Wyandotte chicks and six silver laced. They are about a month old, and I’m dying to know what I have in my coop. Can you tell from combs? Each of these pics is a different chick. What do you think?

That's my guesses.
You know with laced birds males and females feather out differently.
Might be better to show whole body pics although I'm not sure if they're feathered out enough to tell yet.

It's not an exact science at that age, but sometimes you can. I agree with the Moonshiner on all guesses, especially #6, though I prefer to go by wattle development a lot of the time, rather than comb.

I'm pretty sure Wyandottes are considered a slow-maturing breed, which may complicate things.

Pretty birds.
