    This is my freebie from the hatchery and when I asked the gal in the retail part of the hatchery what breed it was her response was "obviously it's an egg layer since that's what you ordered". I wanted to say no ****! She obviously didn't want to take the time to go ask someone that would know, so please help me identify this cutie so I can look up what I can expect from her!! In my previous orders the freebie one is the same as something else you ordered so it was easy to figure out what breed but she doesn't look like the others. She has a black back, gray wings/chest, yellow muddled with gray belly & pink legs. Thanks everyone!

    Meyer Hatchery in Ohio, they have a bagillion different breeds so it's kind of a stab in the dark for me. I have other chickens but I'm kind of new to raising so I only can tell what the ones I order should look like. I ordered 2 Golden Laced Wyandottes so it isn't that because those stood out since there were two that looked the same. I also ordered Cuckoo Maran, Speckled Sussex & Salmon Faverolle and this one looks nothing like the others. They had like 30 on the list of hatches for Monday but I didn't save the list and since Monday is over it's no longer up!

    Hmm well you might just have to post new pictures in another few weeks to get the answer.

    I agree. The chick has the right coloring and a rose comb.

    I usually don't guess at baby chicks, but I looked at it & thought gold laced Wyandotte.
