    Here are some pictures of my 6 week old wyandottes. The SL are supposed to be pullets.

    Wow! Those are so cute!
    I'm probably going to get silver laced wyandottes. Do you like them so far? Do they make a lot of noise?

    The SL are very sweet but the BLR bantam is scared of its own shadow. They are a lot more friendly than the EEs but not quite as friendly as the gold sex links. I'm really hoping all the SL are hens.

    Forgot to add that they don't seem noisy as of yet but they are still at the chirping stage. We'll have to see as they get older.

    I've just ordered my Silver Laced Wyandottes. And a couple easter eggers to make things fun. [​IMG]

    They all look like pullets to me. Can't quite tell about that BLRW tho. Mine were all supposed to be 5 weeks when I got them which would make them 6 weeks now. Three are a lot bigger than these tho. Hmmm...

    They're super sweet too. Today I had buzzards roosting in my trees and they ALL flew right into my lap. I was on a chair. So cute!

    I'd lean more towards roos with the amount of red I'm seeing in their combs already. My wyandotte pullets are very slow to get any red in their combs until much older.

    If they're all roos I will be very upset with Ideal. I'm pretty sure the blr is a roo but that was a st run chick.
