    I know it is early, but I am incrediblly curious. I only have two Gold Laced Wyandottes. One has been bigger from the beginning and slightly darker in color. As they've gotten older, the color and size difference has gotten more noticeable. My other chicks look much more consistent.

    Is this likely because one (the bigger one?) is a rooster or is it common for them to be that different?

    Again, I know it's early, but I'm really curious! (I'm brand new at this)

    They aren't Wyandotte, yours have slate colored legs, Wyandotte have yellow legs. I'm unsure what breed they actually are.

    Good to know! I was supposed to have two and based on the coloring I assumed these two were them.

    I have a few yellow feet (maybe the one on the right?)

    Yes these are your Wyandotte. Give them a few more weeks, any roosters will be more apparent.

    Thanks! I think the brown ones might be Easter Eggers. Since those aren't a specific breed, that could explain the variation in appearance, yes?

    It could. They'd usually have greener legs, but if something else is mixed in they could have dark legs. EE is what I thought the first pics were until I saw their legs...lol.
