I have about 10 chicks from a recent hatch.  The one in question was supposed to be a Wyandotte, but is all back (yes, developing all black feathers) and has black legs.  Is this really a Wyandotte?  Or another breed?  I think the guy who shipped the eggs might have mixed this one up.

Idk, but wait untill about 5 weeks the colors you see now aren't the colors they will be. Example these are reds ameraucana and bard rocks when we first got them.

getting feathers

and mostly feathered
...

I guess many breeds do have standard markings but even those can vary from one chick to another

It's very cute, though.  Try asking the breeder what he has; that may help ID this baby.  More time will help too.  Mary

There are black Wyandottes. They aren't as common as the other varieties. The chick does look to have a rose comb. I would ask the person you got the eggs from what breeds and varieties are possible. If black Wyandotte isn't on the list then maybe it's an oops chick.
