    She is fullblood but I don't know what.
    I've posted a closeup so you can see the speckeled breast and the thinly laced wing and back.
    Thank you all for pondering this for me.

    Possibly a Gold Laced Wyandotte lacking a lot of the black?

    Quote:Her body looks wyandotte. I didn't know if they had that problem with lacing. I even had thought maybe she was supposed to have been partridge. I don't see any signs of the light partridge pattern on her feathers though.

    I would think a GLW, but I don't have much knowledge in terms of breeds.

    She is a pretty girl!

    Maybe she is a Partridge/Gold-laced mix... but still all Wyandotte [​IMG]

    i have a few silver penciled wyandottes and one was born black with out the chipmunk color pattern. Now shes got a teeny bit of white coming through, but is still super young. Only 2 mos old, so I dont know for sure what shell look like, but probably similar to yours. Mine was a throw back, thats probably what yours is too.

    The body type fits most hatchery Wyandottes. I am not sure what you mean by full bloodied, its a pretty bird but would not be a good choice for any type of heritage oriented breeding program.
