    I got 3 Silver Laced Wyandottes in early June as day old chicks. These two have always been rowdy and scardy and lately are fighting each other and chasing everyone around.

    I'm sorry, I've gotten confused on which is which. Please look at the pictures in post #5 instead of these.

    #1 again

    #2 (i'm 99% sure it's #2)

    This is the 3rd that I think is a girlie... no comb yet, not super pink

    Thanks for any input! I kinda hope the 2 are roos, because I don't like them very much, lol!

    If the second last photo is not any of the other pictured ones, it might be a boy. Otherwise, they're ALL girls. [​IMG]

    It is one of the ones pictured. I'm seriously confusing myself, lol.

    Here are two better (hopefully) pictures of the two that I'm not 100% sure about.

    Definitely all ladies. Trust me, when I first had Wyandottes I was confused and sure I had a boy too, but no, they just go through weird stages. Plus (and no offense meant) hatchery quality Wyandottes have a tendency to have varying comb sizes and some VERY stringly, tall, upright tails that look quite un-feminine.

    I have one of them! She doesn't have the nice colors in the feathers yet. I hope they get better! She's about 13 weeks old

    Quote:No offense taken! [​IMG] That really helps actually, because they are all quite different from each other. Now if they would just be friendlier!
