    That is a Silver Laced Wynndotte. If it is a rooster it will grow up to look like this

    Thank you! What is your experience with this rooster's temperament? I have 4 pullets, and I'll find out the sex of my bantam and wynndotte later :/ I'm hoping for all ladies but I think I can survive if only one turns out to be a boy

    Honestly one of my SLW roosters was an absolute monster but the other one was an angel. SLW roosters tend to be mild mannered and not aggressive, I guess I got one of the very few who were.

    I am almost certain my bantam is a pullet and the slw is a roo. I have no experience with roosters but I saw the pattern and fell in love, now here I am. Sigh, guess I need to start my research so I'm not blindsided
