Is this a Silver Laced Wyandotte pullet?

    Yes that is a SLW. Not sure yet on sex.
     
  3. Sure looks like my SLWs but at a younger age. Are you sure it's 7 weeks?

    I'm not good at determining sexes but I do have a SLW pullet whos almost four months old and she doesn't have that large or red of a comb/wattles yet.

    So, I'd have to lean toward Roo at this point but mine could be real slow at developing also.

    Yes, it's a SLW pullet. At least I think it's a pullet. Mine reddened up then, too, earlier than I remember my older ones getting red in the comb. The lacing comes later. It develops.

    I sure hope it's a pullet. It looks just like mine I posted questions on. I wasn't sure on three of mine because the comb was wider and redder than on the others I have.

    Thanks everyone! I love this place! Without BYC I would be one clueless, nervous chicken owner!
