    My wife bought me a baby chick from local farm store as my Easter gift,( I'm spoiled aren't i?). The chick is absolutely adorable! I looked all over online and she looks simliar to a silver laced wyandotte. the gray feathers are grayish/blue color.

    She is an Easter Egger.

    She has muffs and a pea comb and typical Easter Egger coloring.

    If she is a girl she will probably lay green eggs.

    Wyandottes don't have muffs or beards. Keep looking.

    Yep, Easter Egger.


    Your wife either doesn't know much about chickens or she doesn't like you very much - it's no fun raising a chick by itself. [​IMG] It needs a buddy. [​IMG]

    Yep - buy it a friend or two. Chickens are flock animals and will not thrive alone. Careful though, you'll have them coming out your ears before you know it [​IMG]

    Buy another chick if for no other reason than one chick by itself is noisier than two.

    I'd say that too, except don't they have blue legs? The legs look pretty pink to me...

    By the way, the chick, whatever she is, is adorable![​IMG] But the others are right, it probably needs a friend. And I'm sure you wouldn't mind another chick, right! [​IMG]
