    Need some Wyandotte experts ... got these two from my local chick guy ... these were a few of the lighter ones Witt only hints of tan on their heads. They about exactly 6 weeks today.

    He had just got them ~30 minutes before I came in, had the BLRWs in their own brooder so I was literally the first to touch them, and ordered them for me because I requested BLRs. They are from Privetts.

    I thought they would be more “splashy blue” but instead they are ghostly gray. One has a little bit darker head and some random steel gray feathers.

    So what kind are they? CDF9B74F-2E64-4C20-9ED9-BFAEE2474866.jpeg 7915DD27-FE66-41F6-8C36-610D6E8F1FCD.jpeg

    A friend tried to tell me they were 'lavender' ... I was so confused! Now I'm curious if they will stay these light colors or darken up.

    Nope, they will remain light or nope, they will darken up? ;)

    To clarify, the one on the left in the first photo is a BA.

    Is this the only one you have? I was referring to the Lavender part. Not sure about the darkening...

    One is black an the other is a blue . Several breeds call their blues lavenders . The color should hold true on both .

    There is a difference between blue and self blue. Self blue is the same as lavender. ;)

    I have two - in my original post, the first photo chick #1 is on the right, second photo is chick #2.

    Here they are together. They are lap hogs :) (Chick #2 is laying down)

    I'm not a breed expert, but these are not Wyandottes at all. Wyandottes have yellow legs and toes, not black. You seem to have a Lavender something. I'd guess these may be mixed. . .? What has a rose comb, black legs, and black on the beak? I've have to research, I don't know. They are beautiful birds though. . .
