    Hi everyone
    I bought some mail order Silver Laced Wyandotte eggs, and I'm not that impressed. These 3 chicks are 15 weeks old, and clearly this top one's a rooster, and so is the next one. I know the combs are wrong for the breed! but I've never raised them before so any comments on their other qualities would be welcome. Should I not breed from them because of the combs?

    These next three pics are of the chick I'm confused about. It has the right comb, but no comb/wattle development like it's brothers. Apart from that, it's body, tail development etc looks to me to be the same as the boys. What do you more experienced folk think?

    Sorry-all roosters. And if you are trying to get more wyandottes, then I personally would not breed the single comb birds.
