    So got my chicks at wilco feed in washington state. I picked welsummer (which i got), barred rock (which i got), SLW (unsure), delaware (def. didnt get). So need help on these two birds both 3 weeks old. First one I think is male, starting to see red in the comb.

    Thank you. Thats what I was thinking. Are they both silver or is the second one golden?

    Agree, both are Wyandottes! The first is a Silver, and I'm thinking the second looks like a Golden?

    What do you think of the coloring on that silver? I'm leaning towards male.

    I see what you mean, he/she's looking a little patchy. But honestly, it's kind of hard to pinpoint an opinion right now, since they're still slightly young. [​IMG] I think we should have a pretty good idea in a couple weeks!

    Silver Laced Wyandotte and Golden Laced Wyandotte, too young to be sure of gender.
