    My 9 year old son name her. Lol. It's really her beautiful unique color of her face that is throwing me off. She is supposed to be a barred rock. And her feathers aren't as smooth as her sister Helga's even thought The Rock looks a little older given her height. What do you guys think?[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG] she is in the back

    Definitely doesn't look like a Barred Rock. So hard to know this young but maybe Silver Laced Wyandotte?? -- based on the calico face - do you have a picture from above to show the body pattern?

    I'm almost certain she is a Silver Laced Wyandotte...

    I don't at this time. I will get one when I get home from work. Funny that they didn't even have those at rural King when we got our 4 girls lol I have 2 slw but got them when they were older 3/4 months. So not sure what they looked like as a baby.

    Every once once in a while the hatcheries can have a sorting error- though if you have a list of possibles that rural king sells, that could narrow things down quite a bit.

    I'd say still looking decent for SLW -- I do hear you on forgetting what chicks looked like when they were little. They change so much it's amazing!

    Yes they do. I'm hoping she will be friendly as my two older ones aren't as much. They're are more skiddish. But like I said we didn't get those as babies so I wonder if that played a big difference. The guy we got them from didn't exactly handle them.

    I think that's a silver laced Wyandotte chick.
