    I would need a better picture (profile/side would be great) to know for sure, but from the front he looks very similar to my silver laced wyandotte chicks. They are about 5 weeks old now.

    Yeah, that looks like a silver laced wyandotte. I'm no expert, but thats what i think it is. :) She's a cute little fellow.

    The coloring looks more mottled than laced to me. And with tinted legs? What comb type?

    ETA: where did you get this chick? That's often a useful clue.

    Murray lists Cochins, Houdans, and Anconas for the breeds they sell in mottled color. I see no crest or leg feathers so it's either an Ancona with incorrect leg color or an EE. Was this by any chance your "exotic" free chick? They often send EEs for those...
