    These 3 are about 9 weeks old. I'm guessing the black one is a roo- it's the only one with wattles (sp?) as of now. It's been a while since I had young wyandottes- the comb is not too familiar to me. Any guesses?

    Oh it took me so long to track these guys down. I had NO luck with eggs. They're all BLRW. If at least one is a girl, I'll be happy [​IMG]

    the last one looks just like my 2 that i'm pretty sure are boys. the others i would hazard to guess are girls, but i'm very new to this.

    i want BLRW SOOOOO BAD!!! [​IMG] i got gold-laced this first go round because i like their body conformation so much, but i want BLRW in the spring or else! maybe if you get some hatching eggs out of these i could purchase a few? [​IMG]

    Wow- now that you mentioned it- it does look like a GLW in the pic. He's supposed to be BLRW though- so he could have splash, black, or blue lacing. You can tell when you pick him up- he's more of a smoky blue-black and red. I got them from a member in GA that hatched them, but doesn't raise them. He said they are from the Barber line.
    I'd like to sell eggs/chicks if I have a pair or trio- but I'd need to build another coop. Too many breeds goin on here [​IMG]
