Could someone post a pic for me? GLW or maybe a welsumer?

    I've got a chick I can't identify and I can't do any pics on here right now. She was chipmunk colored, with very definite streaky areas around the eyes. Now she's chocolate brown, with a little bit of black barring.
    Maybe the "partridge" color? I just can't figure it out. She's about 7-8 weeks right now.

    Feathersite has lots of good pictures of adult birds and chicks.

    You know, I've tried that and I can't find it. I've got a mystery!

    Well, I really looked hard at feathersite, and I think I have a Golden laced wyandotte.

    Their combs should be different. The wyandotte will have a rose comb and the welsummer will have a straight comb.

    I think mine is a rose comb. She has dark colored legs.

    Both welsummers and Wyandottes should have yellow legs.

    Well shoot, she definitely does not have yellow legs. She looks almost just like the photo of the welsumer, but greyish-greenish legs. I really do not think she is an EE. She's not got the "beak" or muffs.
