I recently added these three to my flock. The gold and black one was sold to me as a "golden laced wyandotte". After looking at pictures, I do not think she has the markings. Any opinions? If she isn't, do you think she is another amaracauna like her white and silver sisters?
You're correct, that's not laced or a Wyandotte. That color is often seen in juvenile plumage on wild-type colored birds. Look through the Easter egger threads and you'll see birds with dark heads like hers and brown bodies--that's what she'll look like. Very hawk-ish in appearance!
And I wouldn't leap to the black/white one being a pullet...that is a common rooster pattern in Easter Egger, and it looks blotchier right now rather than even patterned. I would watch and wait to see if that one is a rooster.
Donrae gave you a good suggestion to check on the Easter Egger thread to see color patterns, and gender patterns.
Thank you for the replies, everyone. I appreciate the feedback as I am new to chickens with one month under my belt. Here are some better pictures of the silver one. Do you think she is a roo? I'll need to take him back if he is because I already have one cockerel. Thank you!
