    We're getting super curious about three of our chicks. We got 20 assorted rare breed chicks from Meyer three weeks ago. We also have one from our original order of 77 from four weeks ago that we can't figure out.

    First (3 weeks old):

    Second, three weeks old (black with white head in the middle):

    Third, four weeks old, but smaller than the three week old chicks. The buff next to it is the same age:

    Thanks ahead of time!

    2. I'm thinking Silver Laced Wyandotte but not sure why it hasn't developed its lacing
    3. Could you get a better picture? Is this from Meyer hatchery as well?

    Thanks! Yes, the third one is Meyer's. Not sure if these are any better:

    If it's from Meyer's rare breed assortment, maybe a buckeye?
