Is this a Silver laced Wyandotte, or some other chicken?

I bought these chicks from the feed store a week and a half ago. They were both sold as Silver Laced Wyandottes. They were much older than the other chicks and all awkward looking with tons of pinions growing out.
However, as the feathers have come in, one is very obviously laced and the other is black.
Chick who I totally believe is a WLW Pullet:

Other chick: All black, save for some white feathers under the chin. The comb is in very distinct ridges.


So is it also a Silver Laced Wyandotte? Or likely something else?

Thank you! I had it narrowed down to either Australorp or BSL. (Well, those were the only two black chickens I knew about. :D )

The comb is a bit big, but BSLs are sex linked, meaning that they can be sexed by feathering. Pullets are black with orangish streaks around the body, while roosters have barred feathering.
I had no idea that that's how you sex them. I have a bunch in my garage right now. :) I know what I'll be doing for the next 10 minutes
