    Anyone have the slightest idea what this little guy could be? I originally though black sex link, but a friend of mine and I, are now starting to think possible Golden Laced Wyandotte? He was originally (2-3) weeks ago all black with gold/red coloring on his face. Any ideas or input is welcome and appreciated. Also, I got him and others from Atwoods. I will add more pics of my others later.

    Thanks in Advance!

    I don't know if all Atwoods stores order from the same hatchery, but the one nearest to me orders from Ideal Hatchery. I don't know if that helps narrow down possibilities or not. Sometimes different hatcheries have different breeds available.

    I think he looks just like her, his color will change as he matures.

    Looks like a light colored black sex link.

    Not a Wyandotte, they have rose combs.

    Not a Wellie, it looks like a little cockerel and a Welsummer cockerel would have a black breast and different coloring.

    I thought that's what he was originally. I know the roos grow up to look barred, and I have only had black sex link hens! So, I had no idea what a cockerel would look like. I guess now I do!
