    Their faces are similar but I feel like the SLW is the top one with the coloring on the back and the BA is the bottom one. I have a BR too but I figured her out. I'm new to chicks so just trying to figure out all the distinguishing characteristics.

    I believe you are correct. I can see your dilemma, usually silver laced Wyandotte don't have such a black face, there's usually more white patches.

    I've had both breeds, your guesses are correct.
