    Have no idea - is this a hatchery bird? Has an interesting combination of silver lacing AND mottled or polka dotted sides and chest. Maybe hatchery quality SLW or mixed breed.

    I'm confused I've seen other people's silver laced wyandottes that where a little older than mine that had smaller lighter combs and waddles than mine that where hens?? That's why I figured Roos or roo one looks more rooish to me but idk

    Looks like a pullet to me. Wild pattern if its a pure Silver Laced Wyandotte. I'd say its a Silver Laced Wyandotte/ Silver Spangled Hamburg cross going by the pattern.

    The single comb one seems a little more roo to me and he has green hue in its tail and the tips of the tail are not as round

    I got them from the country store so I'm sure their hatcherie birds so possibly mixed
