    I have no idea what a vorwerk looks like but your chick looks like it might have a little bit of gold lacing, if that helps.

    Interesting, I have heard of the breed, but they are kind of rare even in Germany. It doesn't seem like the sort of breed you just casually pick up at the fair. I'd say he's probably selling Sussex and perhaps misinformed.

    it might be and just bad on coloring, the color will smooth out by adult hood if it is a vorweck

    what do you think? I think maybe her coloring is a little dark,but she has got the blue ear lobes, also she's been the most difficult of this years chicks to tame,but maybe that's because we got her at 3 weeks and all the others we hatched ourselves,it's only in the last couple of weeks that she's come that close to me
