    You will have difficulty telling as they are 2 wks old.Silver laced wyandottes and any other feather sexing should be be done at an early age,days old.Hens feather up wing and tail feathers faster.
    Another way you maybe able to tell is the neck ruff feathers are more pointed in the males.
    Hope that helps.[​IMG]
