    Hi I have a few different chicks that I am just not sure- it was a mixed lot from a breeder who had several different kinds. The lady said it has to be one of the following:
    Araucana, Americana, Barred Plymounth, Black Giants, Columbian Wyndottes, Buff or Lavendar Orpingtons, Rhode Island Red, Black copper maran, or Sussex


    I was told these are Columbian Wyandottes:

    My picture was sold to me as a columbian wyandotte, but I have learned since that it is not, so I deleted the photo here.

    Your columbian wyan. might be the one one the bottom, those chicks look like Cal White(LeghornX)

    also looks like you have a golden sebright (the black one)

    Quote:There are at least 3 types of chicks there, and farmerchef has drawn a conclusion similar to mine.

    What kind of comb do they have? Wyandottes would have rosecombs. Those chicks, like others have said, look more like California whites than columbian Wyandottes.

    My assumption is that the parents are mixed between Wyandottes and leghorns, the older they get the more like a leg horn they look [​IMG]
