    This little lady came from Cackle Hatchery in the Rainbow layer mix. She seems to be lavender or silver on her back.

    What type of comb, looks to be a blue or splash. BLR Wyandotte maybe, just guessing.

    I'm not sure. Probably a dumb question but can you tell comb type at just a few days old?

    For some yes, is it a single comb with the multiple ridge bumps or a flattened out comb that doesn't seem to be there, that would be a rose or pea, or walnut. If you aren't seeing the ridge bump of a single comb, which I don't see in your picture, you probably a Wyandotte, but I think I see muffs on the face, are it's cheeks fluffier than the others? Than it could be a blue Americana. What color are the legs?

    Yes muffs on the face, the legs look like a dirty yellow. I can't see a comb at all. Thanks for you help.[​IMG]

    Perhaps a blue EE. That's my best guess.
