    My Grandma took this photo when she was at a zoo (I think) of a chicken no knew what it was. I was sure I would know...blah...no, I don't. I'm sure you can tell me, though. I was surprised by the gorgeous lacing, as it's just a chicken at a zoo!

    My guess was Silver Laced Hamburg, but...I really don't know.

    Looks like a seabright. As for which variety, I couldnt tell you. Looks like a mix of the two colors, but I know genetics do not work like that. I would say a gold laced seabright

    It looks more like the 'Citron' Sebrights on feathersite.com, as opposed to the Goldens. Is that possible? Or is just a light Golden Sebright?

    Quote:It's possible no doubt. But i think it looks like a dirty silver laced. It seems to get lighter/whiter (pointing to silver) the closer to the neck/head you get.

    It looks like a Silver-laced Seabright. I think the white is just a bit yellowed. It's cute.

    Silver Laced Sebright, then? (Am I spelling this right?)

    ETA: I love your avatar, lotzahenz! He looks very sweet. Is he?
