    Recently found these two abandonded in a city park. What age and breed are they? I believe both are hens.

    SLW, silver laced wyandotte, and they look around 8-10wks, and yes both look like hens. They will lighten up and get more white on their feathers as they age.

    These 2 are about 12 weeks at the time of this pic, they both were dark like yours, then one got much lighter.

    They are Silver Laced Wyandotte pullets. As far as age... I would guess about 2-3 months.

    You have 2 very pretty Silver Laced Wyandotte pullets, about 3 months probably. Golly, I wish I could find some chickens... [​IMG]

    Apparently I don't go to the right parks. All I find are rude children and dog poo.
