    Hi folks! We hatched 22 chicks 3 weeks ago and have lost track a bit in the reeds, particularly between Barnevelders and Blue Laced Red Wyandottes as they looked quite similar as hatchlings. At least to us newbies. :)

    We are trying to discern what we have and see if we can tell gender on a few of the more obvious ones.

    I think this first is a male Barnevelder. Can anyone please confirm?

    This second is a Swedish Flower Hen (I think!).

    First on looks like a gold laced Wyandotte, barnevelder have a single comb, not rose comb.

    Second one I don't know.

    I agree. The first is a Wyandotte, and is a male. I'm guessing the second is a Swedish flower and it is also a male.

    Thank you both for such quick responses!

    10-4 on the Wyandotte. I had forgotten about the combs. That will make it much easier.

    General forum etiquette question - as I pick others out I want to query, should I continue in thi thread or make a new one?

    Thanks again!

    Your thread, do as you please. You may get more answers in multiple threads, but I'm just guessing at it.
