    I'm going to sit here and wait for the answers. My five week old SLW doesn't seem very lacy to me. I'm not sure if it's because it's too soon, or if I was taken.

    I have BLRWs and I don't think they started lacing until 4-ish weeks. Maybe a little sooner...now, at 7-ish weeks, the lacing is very well defined.

    the laced birds i have owned started looking laced rather than funky at about 4-6weeks.
