    I was told that she was one of four silver laced wyandotte but, she's the only one who's white in her feather is a different pattern along with her solid black head. The other three have a white/gray head already.
    This is her..

    These are two of the other three..

    Thanks for the help! I'd like to learn about the breeds I have but, this has had me a bit curious.

    It looked barred rather than laced. I'd say it's a different breed, barred rock or something similar (I'm in New Zealand so we don't have the variety of breeds here - I know there are more barred breeds than just barred rocks just not sure what they are called).

    Good call! I decided to stop back into the store I got them and verified that she is in fact a barred rock.

    You've got some lovely Black Laced Silver Wyandottes and a Barred Rock. lol. :) Barred Rocks are lovely chickens, too and are friendly and decent egg-layers. I've got 5 of them and wish I had bought more!

    Black laced silver? Interesting I was told they were silver laced. Those are different correct? Sorry, I'm fresh out of the egg.

    Well, the full "correct" term for them is Black Laced Silver Wyandotte, but I believe that's quite a lot for some to say, so some people just call them Silver Laced Wyandotte or Golden Laced Wyandotte (the other kind of Wyandotte). Either is correct, I suppose. They are the same kind of chicken. Technically, the lacing is black and the color of the chicken is silver or gold, depending on the breed of chicken.

    Your Wyandotte on the board in that bottom pic looks like a cockerel, that's an awful lot of red to the comb for the age.
