Could this be a Golden Laced Wyandotte? If not, what am I?

    Hi everyone.

    I received this rooster as a "bonus" from McMurray Hatcheries when I ordered my Red Stars. Could someone please help identify him for me?

    He has black and rust feathering.

    He is trying to be aggressive (I'm teaching him that IM the boss!)

    His neck to back is kind of hunch backed (as opposed to my Red Star that are very upright)

    His comb is flat and thick against his head.

    Can't think of any other identifiers.

    Thanks!
    Vickie

    I don't think so, but not completely sure. The laced wyandotts really have what looks like lacing on the wings and such. This one doesn't look very lacey to me

    Not sure how old he is in these pics but he does look like a GLW Roo to me!

    His lacing should get more prominent with age! And yes he has the correct comb for a GLW as well.

    Good score! [​IMG]

    He was hatched on March 27th so he is 16 weeks old. Hope that helps.
