    She was in the dark brahma box, but in my admittedly short time raising chickens I haven't seen a dark brahma that looks like this. I specifically asked them to catch her because she looked so different. Loving the cute upside down hearts on some of her feathers.
    So, thoughts on breed?

    I wonder if it's an Ancona. I saw those on the home page.

    The feed store didn't have any anconas, according to their labels

    Can't see the comb well, but I bet that is a rose comb (horse shoe with the luck running down the beak).

    If so, that is a Silver Laced Wyandotte.

    Not a Wyandotte then. Better pictures will help.

    She's probably a poorly colored Brahma. I've had slw chicks that looked nothing like the other chicks but turn out respectable looking slw, could be the same thing here.

    Lacing is black edging around a feather. This chick is not laced.
    There is a lot of white on this chick, I'm thinking it might be male.
