    We ordered 15 barred rock hens and this little chick was also in the box. We guessed a black austrolorp when she was a few days old. Now that her feathers have grown in - we don't know what she is! Splash?
    She seems to be a bully to the rest of our sweet BR hens!!
    Thanks for any help!

    [​IMG] Perhaps it is a silver laced Wyandotte.

    Does anyone else think " she" is a "he"?

    If "she" is being a bully to the rest, you could have a roo.

    When I look at the silver laced Wyandotte and the silver laced Cochin- they both look like her!!
    If I can post pics of her from a few weeks ago - I will.

    [​IMG] She looks liike a Silver-Laced Wyandotte. "She's" probably a pullet, but Wyandottes can be difficult to accurately sex until they get older. You can tell that she is not a Cochin by the fact that she doesn't have feathered legs.

    Thanks everyone!
    I was worried its a roo, also.
    Guess we'll just wait and see with that!
    I cannot post the pics of 'her' as a baby. My ipad hates me today.

    Please let us know once you are certain about the gender. I have a SLW that looks a lot like yours and is about the same age.
