    Hello!

    I’m new here. I own a daycare in CA and ordered 3, day old chicks from Meyers.
    A blue laced red Wyandotte
    A golden laced red Wyandotte
    And an olive egger

    Yet, I don’t think I got what I ordered and am stumped by this first one.
    I am 90% sure the last two are both golden laced red Wyandotte’s.
    Help please! Curious and also was really excited to get a blue laced, but I think they fudged my order....

    Looks like you have a Cream Legbar, it may also be your Olive Egger. And you have two Gold Laced Wyandottes.

    Haha! Totally makes sense with the two random feathers sticking out of her head.

    Thank you so much that’s been driving me nuts!

    Color is a little off for a pure Cream Legbar pullet, so it very well could be an Olive Egger.

    The first does indeed look more like a Cream Legbar than an Olive Egger. :) From what I've noticed, OEs of Welsummer X Cream Legbar descent usually sport Welsummer coloration and a crest. Stunning birds! :love

    The first gal looks more like an Olive Egger but I'm not sure, the colors are a bit misleading.
    They are beautiful though!

    It looks like a gold laced wyandotte.

    agree with above, and the Gold Laced Wyandotte (no red) in the foreground of that pic may be a cockerel. That's a lot of wattle and comb for a couple of week old.
