    This is my rooster Rocky. I believe he is a silver laced wyandotte or some mix. Hope you can help me identify.

    He was given to me by a friend who thought it would be great for the pot. I wasn't at all prepared for that or even keeping him but on his insistence, brought it home. Something or the other would come up and I had to lay it off for a day and then another, until I grew fond of him. Then I brought him some chickens [​IMG]

    I keep him in the garage through the night though, just to keep the neighbours at peace [​IMG]

    Would this one be a Goldlaced Wyandotte. I believe it's a bantam because it looks mature, but is petite and has small eggs too. I think even my roo is a bantam cause they're roughly the same size. What do you say?

    And this is Lily, an Australorp cross. She's a few weeks from laying is what i was told. Can you guess her age? Thanks

    Nope your brown bird is not a gold laced Wyandotte. Can't really tell what she is, but def not a GLW.

    Your BA looks to be around 17 weeks

    Your brown bird is a mixed breed, probably with Wyandotte in her somewhere. I think that Lily is between 16 and 18 weeks old.
