    Need help identifying this lovely girl. Was told when she was given to us that she's a gold laced wyandotte - but she doesn't look much like the photos I've seen of them. She does lay a beautiful light brown egg. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks~!

    Chick one looks like a female, and chick two looks male. I could always be wrong though. Maybe post picks when they are older as well.

    She looks like a black sex link or a black star. Beautiful hen, but definitely not a wyandotte.

    Thank you for the response - I didn't realized that I'd piggybacked on another users thread! Newby mistake!
