I am unsure of any sexes, although the Isa Browns were labeled as pullets. All chickens are 5 weeks old.

    Your 'wyandottes' aren't wyandottes. I'm not sure what they are. How big are they compared to the ISAs?
    As for the ISAs, that's what it looks like you have, and that means they'd be pullets.

    They are about the same size as the Isa Browns....maybe a tad smaller. They are definitely faster, fly more and are more skittish than my Isa Browns. I was told by an employee at TSC that they were Silver Laced Wyandotte’s....but I’m quickly learning that they don’t know what they are talking about most of the time.

    Definitely not silver laced wyandottes, wrong comb, wrong color/feather pattern. I'm not sure what they are.

    Here are some younger pics of the “Wyandotte’s” with an Isa Brown for comparison in some 4C4FF788-B126-43AA-8585-99533778D552.jpeg FFDD7D75-85F5-408F-A1BC-66145F5784F2.jpeg 312F11F4-AB79-4A96-8019-BA08C8D182A3.jpeg 864D04A5-8BA4-4349-A793-33AD7967B836.jpeg 9874AF9A-40FC-4CB5-913F-7D0F13B29659.jpeg

    Yea, wyandottes don't have that strong chimpmunk pattern either. I wonder if their American Game Fowl... but those are usually bantam sized.

    Hmm, the ISA Brown are pullets, but I agree, I can't tell what the others are. Can you try to get more individual pictures of them? Full body shots? If you can get them to be still long enough lol :)

    0CCFA1C1-4F21-43AF-BD9B-EC44E1E809A5.jpeg Thats been our problem with them. We let them out free in the evening while we are out with them and my kids catch them to put them up at dusk. They always complain they can’t catch them and it’s quite funny watching my kids run after them and these chicks look like little roadrunners! Most pics we take are blurry due to how fast they are!
