    Sorry about the size of these pics. I don't know how to make them any smaller. :oops:
    Anyway I was given a dozen eggs by a friend whose sister has an npip certified farm/hatchery and they were supposed to be either golden laced or blue laced wyandottes. He couldnt remember for sure. However all the wyandotte chick pics I've seen the chick is striped. There are a couple browner chicks hatched that do have striped backs, but most of them are black/gray with light colored wings and a little brown on their faces. Could these still be wyandottes and if so what kind? I can't get very good pics. I can however answer any questions.

    Their combs and feet look right for Wyandottes. I have laced birds, and those are striped, but I can't speak for the solid colors; those might not be chipmunky.
     
  3. those are NOT wyandottes, at least silver laced, I dont know if they could be blue laced wyandottes but i would say no

    sorry i cant say what breed they COULD be

    if that is what you orderd, you probably 25% or less blue laced becuase blue doesn't breed true.

    Could be Golden Laced Wyandottes. Here's some pics that look similar... I found these online.

    You're very welcome! I ordered some chicks from Cackle Hatchery and they sent them out this morning. I am expecting 5 of the Golden Laced on Wednesday, along with 5 Australorps, and 5 Buff Orpingtons. I can't wait to get them! I have Silver Laced now, among MANY others, but the Golden's are so pretty I just had to have some of those too. LOL! We have 42 chickens of all different ages.
