    Towards the bottom are some pics of SLW chicks http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/CGP/Wyand/BRKWyand.html

    I
    agree that it doesn't have much white on its face. My chicks are from Cackle and are pullets, if that makes a difference.

    Does it have any white on the top of its head? I had a Maran that was very similar, but it had a spot of white on its head. Finding a Maran in the bin at the feed store would maybe be unlikely?
