    I have 3 silver laced wyandottes and two gold laced. Pretty common colors.

    I bought them in a batch of 11 pullets: 2 RIRs, 2 Buff Orpingtons, 3silver laced wys, 2 gold laced wys... and wait, 2 more gold laced wyandottes?

    But they are all black with gold laced collars:

    So, am I going crazy and just have 2 really cool/different looking Wyandottes, or is this a different breed altogether?

    And as added fun, has anyone else every found a neat looking/different colored bird in thier flock?

    Your bottom two remind me of black Sex Link (BSL).

  3. I agree. I think that's what they are.

    The two you are unsure about are not Wyandottes. They look like Black Sex-links.

    Your two unusual "Wyandottes" look like Black Sex-LInks (Black Stars). They'll be great layers for you![​IMG]

    Agree on the black sex link pullets. If you look close, you'll see they have different colored legs (Wyandottes have yellow, bsl are sometimes yellow but often dark) and different combs (Wyandottes have rose combs, bsl have straight combs).
