FS - Silver laced Wyandotte bants - pair
« on: July 29, 2010, 06:50:02 pm »
Due to lack of room (because Im concentrating on my orps) I have a pair of very nicely marked Silver laced Wyandotte bantams.  Both are unrelated -  the hen is a year old and came from a breeder in par, the cock was from hatching eggs from a breeder up country.  They are pretty and the cockerel (again a year old) is approachable.

25 for thepair.  obviously need to be collected from Cornwall.

Orps are really hard to sex until at least 12 weeks old (at least for me).  The Buffs are harder than the blues and blacks - Im managing them better.
Firstly Im looking at the colour of the face....in males it reddens up quicker than females.  Then Im looking at feather shape.  Pointed feathers (obvious around collar and on back) for males, rounded tips for females.

Apart from this its a waiting game.  Im never sure till around 12 weeks for blues and blacks, but it can be 18 weeks for the Buffs (or untilone crows)

Shame we live at opposite ends of the country, I would have been interested.
