    Yup :) Def. not an EE. He/She doesn't have a single comb, doesn't look much like a pea comb either....

    Any idea at least on the color?

    Looks like my silver lakenvelder did when she was a chick. Can you post a close-up of the comb?

    Yep, I would have to agree... We need to know the comb type... Rose comb = silver spangled Hamburg, single comb = silver Lakenvelder

    Yes! I'll get a picture of it tomorrow...

    As far as I can tell, comb-wise compairing them with Lakenvelders and Hamburgs his/her comb is more like the Lakenvelder....

    Thanks everyone for your help! I'd love to hear more opinions!

    Ooo good call there on the legs...
    What color is the Hamburgs? I looked at some pictures of Silver Spangle Hamburg chicks and they seem too light colored...
