    These little friends are about 5 weeks old and I don't know if they are Hens or Roos. Sorry the pics aren't better but they are a little camera shy!

    Cool, when I bought them the guy said they were straight run but when the punched in the code, it said pullet. They have different colorings do I wasn't so anymore. Thanks.

    Golden and Silver Laced Wyandottes? Total guess.
    Pullets as far as I can tell.

    My GLW looked the same as a chick.

    Quote:They look nothing like either my GLW or SLW chicks. No idea on breed, but the lightest colored one looks rooish to me... too early to tell tho.

    Looks like two pullets and a cockerel.

    ETA: They're definately not SLWs.

    I forgot to mention that these came from the local feed store that gets theirs chicks from Hoover's Hatchery. I bought them because they were Americaunas (note the spelling). I know they aren't SLW since I already have one of them. My guess would be a mised breed?
