Got this little chick in a SR Bantam bin at Atwoods...

I am hoping it's a Golden Sebright! My last was a Silver SB and was pure love...we lost her to a predator last summer

Turns out the little chick is looking more like a Golden Laced Polish. The head feathers are giving it away. Wow - they change so much as they grow!

Very interesting indeed. I did not see development of a topknot on the chick pictures that would've pointed to Polish, but notice that the chick possesses the wide, cavernous nostrils. Sebrights do not have that.

I noticed the nostrils too, but the reason you see the crests in the chicks is because they have vaulted skulls that enlarge the crest size. Not all chicks have them, such as this chick.
