    Not sure what breed this is. I ordered 5 Silver Laced Wyandotte but 3 of them look like this. Not what I thought Silver laced look like, I could be wrong. New to Chickens. Any ideas as to what they might be?

    What is that red on them???
     
  4. If the red is just artificial they look like black Australorp chicks to me except their legs aren't greenish..... I had some silver laced wyandottes n they had a chipmunk pattern going on as chicks.

    The red I think is something the hatchery put on them. And the other two of the 5 that were to be Wyandotte have the chipmunk markings.
     
  6. If their legs r blackish up towards the body I would say black austrlorps still

    If they're marked from the hatchery there should be a record of what they are. What did you order and from where? Any chance these are packing peanuts?

    I ordered them thru Farm and Fleet. They ordered from Cackle Hatchery. The person packing up the orders at Farm and fleet had to make the mistake. I have to call them and see what can be done. I hate to move them again and stress them out again. I may see if they have any more chicks and hopefully get some of the right chicks. I would care except the Silver laced are more that the Blk Austrlorps. And hopefully these are pullets and not straight run as that is what I ordered.

    I'm leaning towards them being Australorps. They're definitely not Silver Laced Wyandottes.
