    Hmm...well, it looks nothing like my slw chicks. They were mostly black. I don't know what it is, but it's certainly beautiful!

    Here's the link to FeatherSite and their pictures of Wyandotte chicks (at the bottom of the page). The first pic of slw chicks, now that's what mine looked like at that age. The next pic of a slw chick, however, is considerably lighter! Your little guy could be a slw, just a very light variation of chick coloring! I do so love a good mystery. [​IMG]

    ETA: I guess the link would help, huh? [​IMG] http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/CGP/Wyand/BRKWyand.html
