    Here are pics of our new 3 Silver Laced Wyandottes and 3 Gold Laced Wyandottes. It seems the one silver laced is already showing lacing patterns on her new wings, besides the legs getting darker! All were bought as pullets.

    Now at a year later do you have pictures of them grown up? I have a SLW chick right now that has a comb that looks very much like a single comb like yours in the 7th picture and was wondering if that chicks comb did Pea when it grew up or if it kept looking like a single.

    We ended up selling the slw because the color was off - we plan to try again with a different hatchery. The glw was good.
    Also some other slw we bought as pullets - 3 were roos!!

    As soon as they were a few months old- they did not have the nice white black pattern - too much black- also 3 of the ones we sold "changed" into roos!! when we bought pullets only!

    When I first saw those pictures today... I was like, those are not SLW. I have some in the brooder right now, definately "off" colored to say the least, lol!
