So... nearly all of the chicks are facing right and looking at me out of their right eye... the one that is facing left is the one I am starting to wonder about. I have no experience, and realize it may still be too early, but I will welcome any experienced eyes regarding this little one. Thank you in advance.
It is a SL Wyandotte. It may still be too early to tell...but there are two other SLWs in the box (one behind the chipmunky looking one and one in the corner), and this one is starting to look drastically different from them.
I got these chicks Friday morning, and over the last three days, this one SLW has developed a very white breast and lighter wings in contrast with the other two who are still very grey, despite starting out looking the same.
I looked at everyone's wing feathers yesterday and saw very clearly 2 rows of feathers on everyone... including the SLW in question... which I have read indicates a pullet... But the abundance of white (almost yellow in places) is giving me doubts. And it is still going to be a few weeks before the comb does it's thing and really cinches the deal.
p.s. (best case scenario, they are all pullets, this one just looks different... the "just my luck" scenario, this one is a pullet, the other two are not... the worst case scenario being, 3 chicken dinners. Ooooh, noooo!
