    When we got these 3 little chicks, we were told they were silver-laced wyandottes. They look nothing like wyandottes! After doing some research, we think they're silver phoenixes. What do you think? If they are, what am I supposed to do with "ornamental" chickens???

    I forgot to say: they're about 2-3 months old and I think they're cockerels but I'm not sure.

    Hmm, I don't know. But they are nice looking, yes not wyandottes! Hopefully someone else can help you out. [​IMG]

    Yep, they look like silver Phoenix roos to me. I love the long tail and saddle feathers they get.
