    We picked up these 2 chicks at a local feed store. They were ordered from a hatchery in Texas. We were told that they ordered some silver laced and golden laced wyandottes. So, that's what we thought we got. Meet "Ana" (the goldish one) and "Elsa) (the silverish, brownish, blackish one). We are totally in love with both of them. We are just wondering what they actually are. Ana, our "golden laced wyandotte" is now growing what looks like a beard and has a greenish, slate tint to her feet. Elsa, our "silver laced wyandotte" has the same greenish slate tint to her feet, no beard, red ear lobes, a comb that looks like it may grown into a "brain" and has silver, brown, and black splashed throughout her feathers. I would love to get some experienced advice or guesses on what breed they actually are. Whatever they turn out to be, they are here to stay in our family. Thanks in advance for any help!

    WOW!!! How lucky are we!? Thanks for your input! That was one of our guesses but just wasn't sure. If you don't mind me asking, what is it about them that makes you come to the conclusion of Easter Eggers?

    Not at all! [​IMG] EEs generally have beards, green legs, pea combs, and come in a rainbow of colors. One of my EEs with lots of Ameraucana blood in her looks very similar to your beauties!

    Thanks so much for your insight! Can't wait to see what they grow into and what their eggs will look like :)

    Again, you're so welcome! I'll bet you'll be thrilled with those colored eggs that make your cartons looks even prettier. [​IMG]

    I bet I will be too! I was told from our feed store that these were pullets. Is there any way to tell due to the color or combs if they are pullets for sure? I have noticed that the silver and black on has more prominent red comb, ear lobes, etc. Don't see any wattles dropping yet. They are approximately 9-10 weeks old.

    Thank you so much! I was pleasantly surprised to get this news! It was an "Oops" by our local feed store, but you won't hear me complaining. I just hope they were right when they said that they were all pullets. We can't have roosters. The silver ones comb/ear lobes seem to be more red that the brown one. For our sake, I hope we have 2 girls! We are already attached!

    I was actually kind of thinking "Elsa" looked like a cockerel with those red shoulder patches, but I didn't know how old they were. Pretty sure Ana is a pullet, but I could be wrong. [​IMG] We had two EE cockerels out of the pullet bin last year, and we had to give them away. Such handsome boogers they were!
