    If it has a comb rowing in and turning red at 6 weeks it might be a roo. Looks like maybe a SLW. Could you get a better picture?

    I agree, looks like a silver laced wyandotte.

    From what I can see, it looks like a Silver Laced Wyandotte. It wont have a short life unless you, or a predator, ends it. Or an illness, but you get what I mean. [​IMG]
