    These are the bonus cockerels we got with our mail order. They are almost 1 month here. They were labeled Araucana/Americauna but that does not seem right to me because they all look alike! All 25! The Araucana/Americauna pullets were in a variety of colors and muffs. Something seems off too me. I am wondering if they are Cuckoo Marans or Silver Laced Wyandottes or perhaps something else? HELP please!

    That is what I was thinking. After all of your comments, I also sent a picture to Mr. Healthy Hatchery, that sent me the mismarked chicks, and they said they were Silver Laced Wyondottes too. Thank you all for your accurate feedback!

    So the hatchery got the breed wrong. Can you tell me if they got the sex wrong too? Pullet or Rooster Silver Laced Wyandotte?[​IMG]

    Wyandotte are a bit tricky, the back one looks rooster, the front one does look a bit like a pullet.
