    Here are my silver laced wyandotte and australorp girls. 4 1/2 weeks old.

    The tail on the bottom photo of the australorp seems a bit "up there"...my two other birds have much "fluffier" butts.

    You can see the butt of the Orpington/Rock/whatever in front. She's by far the biggest. [​IMG]

    The wyandotte's skin near the comb is peachy and appears redder at different times or in different light, and other times it's completely hennish. She also hides under the other two when there's a commotion that upsets them all.

    I'm not sure about the Wyandotte but the Australorp looks like a Rooster.

    Shock horror dismay!! [​IMG] But in all honesty, I think the Australorp is very rooish. He/she seems to give off a lot of warning peeps to the other birds, as well. When my parent's dog came out into the yard tonight, the australorp was the first one to start a very strange loud peep.

    Shoot...we are/were looking forward to her because we have cold winters.
