    I got this bonus "rare breed mystery chick" from McMurray but am clueless as to what it is. It is now 6 weeks old. I can take better pictures in the morning if needed. Thank you for your help!

    If it has a rose comb, maybe a Silver Laced Wyandotte.

    It does have a rose comb. Not a great picture...

    Thank you both so much, I agree. It does look like one. Are they difficult to sex? I wonder if it's a pullet or cockerel. :)

    Looks like a Silver Laced Wyandotte. I'm not sure on gender, however. The coloration looks feminine, but the comb is rather wide.

    It is a Silver Laced Wyandotte. It is too young to accurately tell gender with it, but I'm leaning towards cockerel for now.

    Definitely a Silver Laced Wyandotte, but it's too young to sex yet with any degree of accuracy. I would suggest posting it again in about 3 weeks.
