    What do you think???
    4 week old Golden Laced Wyandotte (my order is supposed to be all pullets). The following 3 pics are the same chick. In the last pic, the chick is the one in the back.

    I wouldn't say so, but it might be a bit early to tell. I have two silver laced wyandottes that looked like that at 4 weeks. At about 6 weeks they started to get slightly red combs but I have heard from others on here that wyandottes get red a bit quicker. Not sure if that is completely true, but at 9 weeks, mine are still very pullet-like. I would give it a few more weeks.

    OH, I didn't know that about Wyandottes, that makes me feel a little better. This chick is a little darker than the other two and has a slightly shorter beak and more striking eyes...but is feathered out like the others.hmmm...hard to be patient, but trying!! The chick is really sweet, so...[​IMG]
