    So I work at a feed store and unboxed chicks 2 weeks ago.... still no clue what this one is.

    It came in from a hatchery that sent us silkies and Cochin bantams. Sooo I noticed this one with the muff right off the bat. It didn’t sell and was going to go to the bargain bin and so I ended up getting her. This isn’t the typical feed store mislabeled chick because I know she came from the box labeled only “silkie assortment”.

    I thought maybe an olive egger but no, legs and ear holes aren’t anything but yellowish/Brown...

    No feathered legs and no fifth toe (so probably not salmon Faverolle but maybe?)

    Has a tail/rump. No double comb, comb area is almost flat.

    My guess is maybe an Easter Egger/ameracauna that ended up in the wrong box, but only maybe?

    Super light Russian orloff?

    I’ll try to take better pictures soon but here she is with my black australorp/olive egger/copper maran/barnevelder group of misfits.

    I think you've got an Easter Ether placed in the wrong box. What color are the legs?

    All the GL Wyandotte we get are mostly black with gold stripes on the back and gold speckling on the face.

    Likely an Easter Egger. Color is way off for a GL Wyandotte.

    Yeah, plus was twice the size. No black beak, no fluff, no fifth toe, comb all wrong. I had silkies before and knew it definitely wasn’t a silkie!

    I want some Easter Eggers anyway so kind of hope that’s what she is.
