    i have a golden laced wyandott roo.
    2 silver laced wyandott hens.
    2 light sussex hens

    they produced
    2 yellow chicks, looks like baby light sussex
    2 gray chicks
    1 black
    1 yellow ish red . the wings look like a golden laced wyandott, the rest looks like a yellow light sussex.

    from what i was told they can be sexed by color.
    they are 2 weeks old today
    the black and the yellow/red ish ones look like roo's to me . they have longer tails and wings are quit a bit longer.
