    Alright, here is my little sweetie I have been obsessing over. I actually have two like this. I am hoping that with her "big" wings someone can tell me for sure what she is. [​IMG] She is a little beauty, that's all I know. Oh, and I wasn't killing the poor thing. She does this with her wings every time you pick her up (she is one of my most skittish and flighty so far) and it made it so perfect to get a pic. [​IMG]

    Is she a Columbian Wyandotte?

    Wellllllllllll................I will have to admit I had no clue there ARE Columbian Wyandottes!!! [​IMG] I am gonna google it and see what they look like. Certainly sounds pretty and I love my Wyandottes. She has a single comb, however, but so does the Gold Laced Wyandotte I got at the same time (something that seems to be happening a lot these days). I am just ready for them to be big girls!!!! LOL

    Best of luck in solving the mystery! They probably won't get real adult colored feathers till they are 2-3 months old. Kind of how baby RIR's start off with white and black dots, specks, and bars on their winglets.

    They show them as chicks and full grown on Ideal and McMurray.
