    I've been offered this guy as a breeding rooster... he doesn't look like the purebred SLWs roos I've seen though..... Would really appreciate some opinions!

    Thanks!

    I am no expert but I see a little bit of a cross in him.

    He looks like a typical production-bred Silver-Laced Wyandotte cockerel to me.

    What are you feeding them? Is the diet high in corn?

    If you're being offered him as a purebred SLW I'd say to say thanks, but no thanks. I'd say he's more than likely a cross.

    He looks like a cross to me or he might be a GLW x SLW
