    New chicken mom here. I'm curious if there's any correlation between chick coloration and adult coloration, specifically in Silver Laced Wyandottes? I got four chicks earlier this month, one of which is light/medium gray with a lot of light markings, one of which is black with very few light markings, and two of which are somewhere in between. I know adult hens of this breed have some color variation (some are much more white, others much more black), so I'm just curious if it's possible to predict what they'll look like as adults.

    It is possible to predict what they'll look like, but the adult color sometimes doesn't look like the chick color

    Okay. I'm mainly wondering cause I have some name ideas that are based on physical appearance. They're from a feed store, so I'm not expecting show quality or anything.
