Any chance this could be a wyandotte?

    I thought my splash BLRW hen was mating only with the splash BLRW rooster, but this is the chick that hatched from that hens egg. (I put the egg under the sitting hen myself) I have a mixed flock of Barred rock chicks, 2 mutt chicks and this one...that is atleast part wyandotte.

    what do you think? wyandotte or wyandotte mix? (the chipmunk one on the right)

    I assume you are asking about the chipmunk looking chick that is front, center??? What kind of comb does it have?

    it has a rose comb as far as i can tell...doesn't look the same as the straight combed BR's. (The only chick in the photo where you can see the whole chick)

    here, my terrible job of cropping:

    That looks like a splash BLRW. They hatch with the chipmunkey stripes. Light ones are splash, dark ones are blue.
