    I got a pullet assortment from my local hatchery (townline) and am trying to figure out what breed my stripey chicks are. I know it might be too early to tell but everyone on this forum seems to have a great eye for breeds so maybe not!

    I have a few like this ^^...

    One light one ^^.

    This dark one ^^.

    Some have this kind of comb:

    And they looked like this when they were little:

    Any thoughts? Based on the breeds sold by townline I've narrowed the options down to either golden laced wyandottes, silver laced wyandottes, or Easter eggers.

    That's what I was thinking too but a couple have straight combs and I thought wyandottes were supposed to have rose combs?

    It will be easier to tell as they get older, you can have sc birds coming out of wyadottes.
