    So I purchased these chicks at the feed store. I was told they were all golden laced wyandottes, but I think that may have been incorrect lol. The darker chick is now getting the laced feather pattern, but this lighter chick isn't. And she seems to have fluffy feet lol. Any ideas?[​IMG]

    I can't see the darker one to get a good idea...but the lighter one looks like a buff brahma. I'm gonna go out on a limb though, and say neither are gold laced wyandottes! The feed store strikes again!

    The darker chick could be a wyandotte, with very poor lacing.. can you take a closer picture straight on of its face & comb?
    Larger light bird, buff Brahma, second that for sure.

    It's really hard to see in this pic, but I do see the spots on its face, and what I think are long narrow flecks of brown or "gold" of a glw on the feathers.. that's why I said poor quality lacing, it's going to be a more flecked looking bird than laced... I wanted a comb shot to be sure.

    I got some more pictures. I'm excited about the 2 being buff brahmas :). I've been a little worried that he Wyandotte might be a cockerel :/

    I see what you're seeing when you say your concerned about it being a cockerel. Wyandottes can be difficult to sex, and they're not my specialty, I've only raised females. But I am leaning, heavily, towards cockerel.time will tell you for sure though.
