    I picked this baby out of a bin at Atwoods because of it's unusual colors. She looks like a little penguin and she does everything in superspeed. I call her Happy Feet. Is she Silver Laced?

    Happy Feet is a cutie.

    Gosh everything in me wants to say this chick is a light brahma.

    Thanks! The pictures of light brahma chicks on Feathersite are very different.
    Also, I was wondering: does it look like she might be frizzled?



    Here's a link to a video of her scratching.

    Darling babies! I love the video.

    I can't see her comb. Is it single or a pea comb? If it's a pea comb, which I'm leaning towards, I'd agree with brahma, but I don't know what color. I've never had one. Want one, though...

    Silver Laced Cochins are generally born very dark and the Silver comes out as they get their feathers in. I am also not seeing the "fluff" a Cochin chick should have. I also am saying Light Brahma.

    Well, you could be right about the Brahma, although I'm thinking dark, not light. Her wing feathers are coming in black & white. Her comb is very small. I think maybe it is a pea comb, after comparing her to the other chicks.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Pea comb fits with brahma, and I too am saying light brahma--love the breed.
