    This was from 1 of 7 white eggs that were supposed to be golden Campines. The person o got the eggs from mostly had show chickens. The only other white egg with yellowish chicks that the he had that I know of was the Appenzeller Spitzhauben, but he could have more.

    Definitely not a Golden Campine chick. Does it have a grayish mark on its head? It looks much more like a Spitzhauben...

    The pictures of Spitzhauben chicks I've seen have much more grayish/shadowy mottling and aren't that stark yellow/white.

    It honestly looks more like a Cornish X or White Rock than anything.

    Guess I'll have to wait till he/she gets older to figure it out. If anyone else wants to guess Ill post some pics when she's older

    If it hatched from a white egg...maybe it's a Leghorn. Time should tell!
