    I found a guy who had some Wyandotte chicks that were EXACTLY the same age as my other chicks- same birthday even! I got 3 golden laced pullets to go with my 19 silver spangled hamburgs and 1 lakenvelder. I can already tell a difference in personalities- the new wyandotte chicks will sit on my hand forever and just look around, happy as can be while the hamburg chicks will come up to me fine but protest mightily if I try to touch them in any way.

    I got these 3 to be more like pets than the hamburgs and so far on their first day they pass the audition! [​IMG]

    Here's one of my new little babies at 2 weeks old as of yesterday. Picture taken today-

    I have two golden laced wyandotte chicks too and they are the sweetest things [​IMG] My three EE's and Barred Rock peep like crazy when you touch them, but the GLW are so quiet. I'm not seeing much gold in them yet though. I'm hoping the woman who sold them to me knew what she was doing. Congrats!

    This is good to read as I am considering getting wyandottes. I now have to decide between gold or silver laced.[​IMG]

    You've asked the wrong crowd b/c you *know* the answer will be: "one of each!"

    My Blue Laced Red Wyandotte chicks also have very sweet personalities. They don't mind being picked up at all. My Silver Laced are friendly chicks but a little more tightly wound. They're a bit aggressive to other chicks and though comfortable once I pick them up, they don't like the approach.
