    I'm wanting to pick up a silver laced Wyandotte chick today but they have them mixed with the golden laced. They told me I'd have to take my chances since they can't tell which is which. Is there something I can look for? My friend bought one of each yesterday and I could swear one had slightly more golden tips, very slightly. But if the pros can't even tell, I'm a little hesitant. Are they really that similar or are these all golden laced?

    SLW will have more of a salt and pepper look to them and GLW will be darker in color and have more of a golden face to them... Here are pictures of both

    Oh wow they look a lot different in your pictures. My friends both look like the golden laced chicks. Thanks for responding.
