    They are 5-6 weeks old (BR and RIR). I have a good idea/guess but want some input from more experienced people.

    Please note there is also a Silver laced wyandotte and a golden laced wyandotte (supposedly a gold). They are in the 3-4 week range and i relaize they are probably to young to tell for the RIRs.

    The darker BR is a pullet, and the lighter is a cockerel. As for the RIR, I think it might be a couple more weeks before we can be sure. [​IMG]

    Ya i agree with the BR but these are all production birds so im holding out hope that he magically surprises me and ends up being an odd ball pullet. If not he will probably be food (seems to be hard to rehome roosters in Denver). One of the RIR im concerned about has a weird shaped tail with some darker feathers added in which i find odd at this age.
