    She hatched out Im guessing about the last week of May..
    When should her lacing REALLY show?
    What quality is she? Pet, show, breeding worthy?

    She has more lacing than some hatchery SLW that I've seen but I'd say she's pet quality. Her body shape isn't what a wyandotte's should be either. Here's a couple pictures of some my pullets when they were about the same age. I hatched them from breeder's eggs.

    The first 2 pictures are from the same age as yours...the last 3 are from about 3 weeks ago.
