    I have been going back and forth one this subject. One day I would be like yay they are hens. The next is darn it I think they are roosters. [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG] Need some outside opinions. Haha.

    Those are pullets, though they are WEIRD looking for Wyandottes. I'm more inclined to think they're Wyandotte crosses.

    Edit: I'm an idiot and those are Orpingtons.

    OP said they're Orpingtons. I fall into that trap also---laced birds are Wyandottes, right? [​IMG]

    Agree they're pullets.

    Oh, I'm dumb. I read Silver Laced and apparently didn't read the rest. It's been a long day (and it's only 1 here)...
