Yes to the Wyandotte question.

But what colour are they?? I can see features of silver pencilled and also a hint of partridge, possibly some crele or maybe even birchen, so I'm not sure.

thanks Ron, these are pretty small, there's no sense of scale in the pics but these birds are about the size of the 10 week old large light sussex that they're sharing a pen with, yet seem to be more mature, so Im guessing they are bantam wyandottes, if such a thing exists.
