    not sure if these are wyandottes? or something else - they are 11 weeks old. i ordered them from a 99cent sale of straight runs. can anyone help with identification?

    thanks!

    i have 2 and they are skinny things with long velaseraptor legs. and they really run like crazy if they are nervous - more than the other hens.

    They don't look like pure wyandottes to me. They might be a wyandotte mix? Wyandotte and EE or something..

    They look more gamey than they do like a wyandotte. They are a white laced red pattern. Not sure on the breed.

    It could be a splash Blue Lace with bad lacing. I bet you it turns rooster on you though. I have seen my wyandotte roos get all gangly like that before they fill out.

    i was just guessing about wyandottes - looked up pics on the internet and they don't really look like that. they were from an assorted group mailed from the hatchery. game bird sounds possible, since they don't have the "fluff" of domestic chickens. would a hatchery send out a game bird if they advertised assorted chicks?

    Looks exactly like my 2 white laced red cornish pullets I got from Ideal this year, not really laced and not that cornish looking but according to my receipt thats what they are(I ordered the rare pullets assortment and got wlr + dark cornish, bbred kraienkoppes, buff rocks and black minorcas).
    Almost Identical to yours.

    I can post pics of my girls later on.

    Cornish are not actually game birds.They are dual purpose breed with good meat.
