    Ok, I am now questioning my three chicks who I was told were Columbian Wyandottes. I've googled images and can't seem to figure it out. Help! Also, how old do you think the chicks are. I was told 3 weeks, a week ago. Thanks! ( I see that the first one is a tad more 'yellow' than the other two.. any guesses?

    They look about the same age as my 1-week olds. Maybe you were told 3 days or they said weeks but meant days?

    My 1-week olds are starting to get feathers on their wings, but you said a week ago you were told the chicks were 3 weeks old, and if that is what they look like right now, my guess is they are around a week old. I also know by 4-weeks chicks are typically a bit larger and have a lot more feathers.

    I can not help you with the ages of the chicks but I believe I can help with the breed.

    Yes, they are Wyandottes but two color varities. The top picture is a Blue Laced-Red Wyandotte and the lower two are Partridge Wyandotte. The person who sold them to you maybe had silver-laced and silver-penciled confused.

    I found the on google after searching for each of the Wyandottes color varties followed by the word "chick" then through process of elimination made an educated guess and think I am very close:

    Blue Laced-Red Wyandotte Chick:

    Thank you. The chicks are pretty yellow compared to those pics. I guess we will see! Thanks again... much appreciated.
