    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]My 2 Silver Laced Wyandotte chicks, really hoping we have a future hen and roo.. Really wants 1 Roo to protect our gals.. Any guesses on gender?? I was thinking the one with brighter lines was a roo, it also is a little bit bigger than the other.. I read that un even patterns meant a pullet... [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Got these 2 little fuzzy butts from a couple who breeds silver laced wyandottes for only $3 ea. thought it was a pretty good deal seeing as mypetchicken (the hatchery that our other chicks will be coming from) were more expensive than that, as well as the feed stores!

    I ordered our other 10 chicks from mypetchicken 2 months ago, and have another 6 weeks to wait until they're shipped... the wait was just WAY to long!

    Ugh. I know. I just ordered 7 chicks (my first chicks) from MPC about two weeks ago and I still have to wait until May 21st to get them. :( the wait is killing me! Hope you get a roo and a hen, cabinonalake. Good luck with your babies!

    My birds all had an order date of April 16, but at the checkout, it said May 21. So i figured, if I have to get them then, I might as well add an orpington to the mix![​IMG]
