    We got a bunch of chicks at tractor supply and can't figure out what this girl may be? Any suggestions?[​IMG]

    Gold Laced Sebright.

    I'll give a guess at gold laced wyandottes.

    The down around the head is different from what Wyandottes have. Sebright chicks have black heads with gold faces. Wyandotte chicks usually have more of a splotchy look on the head.

    Don't they seem awfully big for Sebrights ?

    OP, did you get them out of the bantam bin ?

    Judging by the amount of wing feathering, that chick is about 2 weeks old, and is probably about the size of a day old Wyandotte.

    My thought was that she's too big for a seabright too. We got a couple that we think might be seabrights but they're much much smaller.
    We got her out of the bantam bin but it wouldn't surprise me if she was a leftover from an earlier hatch.

    Ok guys. Totally not a laced anything. The feathers coming in on her legs, shoulders, and belly are coming in a really pretty bronze color. Any new suggestions? I've never seen a picture like it lol.
