Silver-Laced Wyandotte.I havn't, I havn't even heard of a SLW
Decently large, but not giant.Have you ever had a SLW roo? I have had hens but not Roos I’m curious about how big they get and if they’re mean
Right. I know meanness is more nurture than nature, in my experience smaller roosters are meaner, but I think it’s because they end up being “beta” roosters and get laid less so they’re grouchy, I’m not sure it actually has anything to do with breed. Usually my “alpha” roosters are nicer Silver-Laced Wyandotte.

As for meanness, well. I've never owned one, only seen them, but it's really hard to generalise with most breeds. With Production Red roosters, I can pretty much promise that almost all will be mean. With Barred Rocks and hatchery RIRs, you've got a pretty good chance (but still, a chance. About 1:3, in my experience) of meanness. Most other breeds are really hit-or-miss (Yes, even silkies) and you'd have to have upwards of ten roosters at a time to even begin to generalise. And even then, you could only generalise based on your method of raising them, and from which hatchery they came. I know a lady who keeps a Wyandotte rooster, and she says he's nice, but that's one chicken. Hardly a significant figure.
