    Hi there
    I recently ordered a dozen day olds from MyPetChicken. In the order, I selected 3 'rare exotics'. These can be anything from this breed list:

    • Buckeye
    • Ancona
    • Easter Egger
    • Ameraucana (Wheaten, Blue, Black, Splash)
    • Black Sumatra
    • Andalusian (Blue, Black, or Splash)
    • Appenzeller Spitzhauben
    • Sicilian Buttercup
    • Salmon Faverolles
    • Golden Campine
    • Buff Chantecler
    • Blue Laced Red Wyandotte
    • Barnevelder
    • Brahma (Buff Brahma, Light Brahma)
    • Marans (Silver Cuckoo, Golden Cuckoo, Black Copper, Blue Copper, Blue Splash, White)
    • Dominique
    • Columbian Wyandotte
    • Dark Cornish
    • Cochin
    • Welsummer
    • White Sultan
    • Polish (Assorted colors)
    • Exchequer Leghorn
    • Speckled Sussex
    • Hamburg (Assorted colors)
    • Lakenvelder (Silver, Golden)
    • Partridge Penedesenca
    • Jersey Giant
    • Blue Orpington
    • Silver Grey Dorking
    • Egyptian Fayoumi
    • Black Langshans

    I can see that I have an Easter Egger, and a white crested blue polish. But this third baby is stumping me. I will post photos of her at 3 days old, 1 week, and 2.5 weeks, (today.) I'd love to hear what she might be. Her name is Siren because she is the loudest little cheeper whenever she gets picked up.

    Siren, 1 week the one on the right (I think the one on the left is my easter egger, maybe bantam)

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Can you tell what kind of comb she may have? If it's single, my guess would be Silver Lakenvelder. : )

    I agree, looks like a lakenvelder. my second guess would be exchequer leghorn but the color of the feather in the newest pics is too white

    It looks a little like the Silver Spangled Hamburg I received as my exotic from Murray McMurray in August. My SSH has pretty blue legs. What color does your chick have?
