    Second one. I was told Gold Campine for this one, correct?

    The first one kind of looks like my Gold Lace Wyandotte

    That first one is way too black in the hackles to be a GLW. I'm thinking Dark Cornish, like the one below:

    What about a Golden Spangled Hamburg? I think she's too petite to be Cornish.

    She is a bit lean for a Cornish, but hatchery stock varies so much, ya know? I don't know Hamburgs well enough to say if she could be that; don't they have white earlobes? But, she's definitely not a Wyandotte. Below is a GLW I used to have--see the gold in the hackles?

    I am thinking Dark Cornish, now that you say it. I have two and their legs do look longer that my other chicks.

    The second looks exactly like a partridge Rock. VERY beautiful birds.

    Quote:Yep, I looked at my GLW's a little closer today. They are just getting their hackle feathers in, and they do look like the one in your picture.

    Agreed. It's kinda hard to come by them sometimes- lucky you!​
