    Those are silver laced Wyandottes. And you are correct, the top one is a pullet and the other a cockerel.

    You "may" want to watch that pullet up top...she looks very unthrifty and is "fluffed" up more than I would expect for a nice sunny day.

    It could just be that you caught her sleeping against the fence.

    Quote:Well, it's not just the position...it's the color in her face, which I know...should be pale, but she looks almost pasty.

    (You've stated the EXACT reason I hated my Wyandottes. Couldn't WAIT to get rid of the demon birds.)
