    Hey Everyone,

    We got this chicken as a free "rare exotic" from Murray McMurray when we ordered meat birds in August. We've been debating what breed he might be for months with silver penciled rock and silver leghorn being the early favorites. Does anyone have any ideas? He hasn't crowed yet at all...He is a rooster right?

    Silver Penciled Wyandotte. Very pretty, I've been thinking about ordering some of them.

    Okay, guys, he IS laced. . . Look at the chest. It's called really poor hatchery quality. [​IMG]

    Also, silver pencilled Wyandottes, even from hatcheries, are very rare.

    I had a few hatchery quality SLW roosters last year and they ALL looked exactly like this guy.
