Picked up these 2 little girls this morning . They told me they thought they were Silver laced ... silver laced what though lol I am only about 4 months in to this adventure and am not familiar with all the differnt varieties yet . They were hatched in early june and are about the same size as my bantams which were also june chicks . So could they be bantams as well ?

Common silver laced bantams are Seabright. But there are other possibilities. :pop

Okay, those two aren't the same breed and also not really silver laced.

The darker one might be a silver double laced ?? Or looks like the same pattern as dark Brahma but not the right legs or comb...

The other one.. the white one.. not conforming to any breed standard that I'm aware of. Likely a crossbreed according to feather pattern not being quite complete.. maybe crossed to something silver laced. Red ear lobes and straight comb means most likely brown eggs. Both look clean legged with four toes and straight combs.. That's not Wyandotte at all and even seabright *should* throw rose comb. But if it had a hidden straight comb gene, will throw straight combs when bred to straight comb. The whiter one will likely lay before the other if she isn't already. But does look hen feathered.. though.. seabright cockerels ARE hen feathered.. if that a silver seabright cross.. well, let me just say that that's awfully big red comb and wattles for the stated age (16 weeks) AND time of year COUPLED with your northern location.. in MY experience anyways.. maybe it's just awesome early maturing genetics, faster than most Leghorn?? :pop

I agree.. barnyard cross is most likely. Kinda fun to roll the dice sometimes! Hope they turn out perfect for you. :love
