My golden campines didn't look like that as chicks. They are only 4 weeks old now so don't have any other comparison.

Here is one of mine at 1 week. I know it's not the best shot, but you can tell a major difference between mine and what you've posted:

I was thinking buttercup too at first. She looked more like a buttercup as a baby. But her comb is not very developed at all. And it doesnt seem to be developing into a buttercup comb. She came from ideal poultry.
I'll try to get a close-up of her comb. She is hard to catch though. Are either buttercups or campines slow at developing their combs? She is 5 weeks and doesnt have much of one.
I am going to say I think that is an EE.

Don't laugh!

I did have some that I sold with that coloration. And I have had EEs with no cheek muffs.

But the Good Lord knows that I am no EE expert and there ARE EE experts here.

Also, I have had Golden Campines, and that is not the way their combs look.

Yeah her comb and legs say easter egger. But she doesn't have puffy cheeks and she is quite a bit smaller than our other chicks who are the same age. Are EE's sometimes smaller?
