    Quote:Yes, they are both BLRWs. Hatchery or breeder, they can vary a lot in color. My guess is two splash roosters. [​IMG]

    I agree, they are both splash, probably cockerels.

    Thank you [​IMG] I have all 5 posted in a different picture. It seems to me based on these responses that I have 1 black, 2 blue and 2 splash. Does that seem right?

    Yes, when we say blue, we mean blue laced red, just don't say all the words.
    Splash is a lighter shade of the variety, but still blue laced red.
    I'd be surprized if you have a "black laced" bird. It will probably turn out to be a dark blue laced red.

    I have 3 wyandotte chicks i kept from a hatch of bought eggs. they look like 2 blacks and a light blue (might be a splash). I think both blacks are hens and the blue is a male, sorry about the bad photo, no one wanted to sit still!

    Beautiful birds no matter to me what lines they came from hehe I have no clue about that......... newbie here,
    anyway I finally heard back from P.P today that the hatchery that my mystery chicks came from carries 2 white breeds besides cornish cross. White rocks and white Wyandottes, I updated pictures and started another name this breed thread here https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=497519
    I'm
    hoping you guys can take a look at this thread and see if these are indeed white Wyandottes, to me I think the 5 bigger chicks with a higher comb are WR, the other 2 with flatter combs smaller and fluffier are WW, please take a look and see if you know if that is indeed what my mystery chicks are finally ? TY all for all your help and guess's for before and for now. TYVVM Kim
