    Looks like my Speckled sussex chick, but I don't know the difference closely.

    I'm going to guess Welsummer because your chick does not appear to have a yellow chest and my SS very definitely does. However, there are a ton of chipmunk chicks and I'm not thoroughly convinced it's a Welsummer either (none of mine had anywhere near that many white specks).

    Oh man! I can see the issue. I was already to answer that it looks like my Welsummer chicks. What is the difference? (right chick in pic)
