I got some chicks last week from My Pet Chicken (first time I've ever ordered from them)

I ordered:

3 pullet barnevelders
2 BCMs
2 Silver Cuckoo Marans

This is what I got:

3 Barnevelders
2 BCMs
1 SCM

and

1 Mystery Chick - she's a cutie, but I've no clue what her breed is?

and I have searched and searched for breeds of chicks that look like her, but I can't seem to find it. Can anyone out there help me out? Pics below.

Thank You!

It looks like it will probably turn out having a Columbian/Light color pattern, but other than that, I don't know what it is.

I agree. Maybe a Delaware, but the chick is too dark. Columbian Plymouth Rock or Wyandotte would be my guess, pertaining to the fact that the beak would become yellow.

Columbian Plymouth Rock is my guess, since it seems to have a single comb (Columbian Wyandottes are supposed to have rose combs).

It's hard to tell now, but the darker markings on her back were that of the "chipmunk stripes", but since her wing feathers are starting to grow a little it's difficult to tell.

And although I'd love to have a Silver Lakenvelder, I don't think she is one, she has yellow legs and feet, not slate.

Actually, when they are this little they don't show the true color of their legs, the proper colored legs for the breed begin to show up in mine when they are around eight weeks old.
