    I ordered 15 chicks from my pet chicken. I had ordered 7 marans mix and 8 of the rare breeds mix. Mi figured out pretty quickly what I had except for one. At first she looked like a black marans, but now she is getting a lot of gold around her neck like a red laced Wyandotte. But doesn't have the abundant red flecks through the body. Any thoughts? So far I know I have 1 wheaten, 2 Easter eggers, 5 black copper marans, 2 columbian wyandottes, 2 blue splash marans and 2 buckeyes. Now I just need to figure out what the mystery hen is! I have looked up all of the breeds on the rare breed list, and none were black as babies and developed the way this one has. Help!!!!

    That's a gold laced wyandotte pullet. Her lacing should be more pronounced as she gets older.

    Thought so! That breed wasn't on the list, that's why I was confused!
