    These are our two Silver Laced Wyandottes from TSC. They are about 10 weeks old now. One we are sure is a pullet but are not sure about the second.

    I think they both look like pullets.

    Second one looks male to me, but at 10 weeks old I could be wrong. See that black hackle area? That is usually a male trait in that breed color variety. Hopefully, a SLW breeder will come along and either verify or refute what I said.

    Sort of hard to tell, but I'm leaning more toward a pullet and a too. Congrats, that's one beautiful pair you've got there [​IMG]

    The side view confirms my suspicions of chicken #2 being a roo

    Yes, SLW's can be hard to tell. I was second guessing myself until I was getting eggs and no one was crowing. I would say though that you have a pair, a pullet & a cockerel.
