I'm still trying to pin down the breeds of two of my four chicks. The Polish are easy LOL. One is I believe a sex-link, like a golden buff or golden comet. The last one is a puzzle. She had a soft yellow head and dark body as a chick, now her body plumage is white with an occasional black spot, her tail is black, and her neck has the Columbian look. But I don't think she's a Columbian wyandotte because she has slate legs. Could she be a columbian easter egger? No beard or muff, though, at least not yet. They're about 9 weeks old. Here's a pic, it's not great - she's the smallest and fastest of them and rarely is still. Friendly and very outgoing, she likes to get up on my shoulder and pluck at my hair.

I'm not sure I'm able to identify comb types, but you can see it in her picture. I'm thinking pea comb right now but maybe a single? I went and looked at silver lakenvelders - one of the pullet photos looks just like my girl so maybe we have a winner!

My son's friend had to get a minimum order from a big hatchery so we got some of the chicks he didn't want, I think it was McMurray? He ordered a mixed batch I guess. I've had them since the day after they arrived to him. I'm totally new to chickens, so having fun sleuthing out their breeds!
