She (I hope) is 7 weeks. I guessed a Silver Laced Wyandotte but just wasn't really sure. I had that breed on my "to get" list !
SLWs have sexually dimorphic feather patterns--the cockerels are feathered differently than the pullets. This one is most definitely a boy. He'll get a white head and hackles and white wings and saddle feathers; the hens are one pattern all over.Really, a Rooster? I didn't see the little v thingy when I checked under the hood. I have an Polish Buff that was a mystery and I've been calling her Glitzy, may have to change it to Uncle Glitzy.
So they tend to send Cockerel's as the mystery bird? Has any one else figured this out?
