    My chick order was slightly mixed up from what I ordered - missing a chicken or two of certain breeds here or there, but had as many as I ordered altogether.... There's a few that I've gone back and forth on what I thought they were supposed to be....

    I originally thought this guy was a silver laced wyandotte pullet that was supposed to be in there.....but his comb got big pretty quick, and the older he gets (they're 4 weeks now) the more he looks like something else altogether. He seems more like maybe a hamburg???? He has a more lean body style, and grey legs and feet.

    So I'm wondering if he is just the random extra that was thrown in the order....

    What's your opinions?


    I think the following pic is of the same chicken twice, but there are two of these that look just alike.... I thought EE at first, because they were brown and chipmunk striped and had a rose or pea comb of some sort.... But they have yellow legs....EEs tend to usually be greenish legged.....

    These wouldn't be silver laced wyandottes would they? I thought they should be black and white as chicks, these weren't...but they're black and white now....but mostly black.....

    If that's the case, then things make a bit more sense....I kept thinking, hey, where in the world are my slw's!?!? lol

    I had one less speckled sussex than I ordered, and one less columbian wyandotte than I ordered. But I had an extra RIR and extra partridge cochin roo.

    If those two are the slw, then that makes things not seem quite so confusing...lol
