    Hi all,
    This is a 6.5 week old Wyandotte, Tacy. (We were told she was a golden-laced, but still looks more silver. Opinions on that welcome too.)

    Her comb is much more red than the others we got at the same time. Do we have a rooster, do you think? Or is it just a breed difference? None of the others are the same breed so we don't have a comparison.
    Thank you!

    Yes that's a silver. Do you have a full body picture? Usually at 2 or 3 months the genders will start looking different, the boys will be patchy and the girls will be solid if that's got a single comb I'm leaning more towards pullet.

    Got some. In the profile pic, to the right of her is the one we were told is silver-laced but isn't showing much lacing at all. A little bit on the head and some white under the wings,

    Here are a couple more that feature our "silver" who probably isn't a silver.
