    Where did you get them? They could be mixed breeds.

    I'd say a Gold Laced Wyandotte. But very poor lacing. And at 7 weeks old, most likely a pullet.

    Profile pics of the bird standing naturally are best, it's hard to see body shape and stance when the bird is being held.

    Source of the birds helps narrow down breed, also.

    Its comb and it leg color does indicate Wyandotte but it would have to be a terribly bred GLW to end up looking like that.

    You can see some slight gold lacing on the wing. Hatchery birds are rarely good quality. Usually they just barely fall into the breed guidelines.

    Two of my chicks have been identified as Wyandotts by several people. These chicks look nothing like these birds

    If my poor quality birds have offended you, I apologize. I will leave the group. I thought this group was for help not to demean people or their chicks.
