    oh...I forgot to say...he has two little black spots on him... one on his back, and one under his wing. He has pink skit, and an orange beak! He is whitish yellow (platinum blonde [​IMG] )
    thanks

    Too early to tell. There are so many that start out as yellow chicks, including White Plymouth Rocks, Leghorns and Delawares.

    A Delaware can. Also, a California White can. Where did you get the eggs? Any idea of the breeds involved? Is it a mixed breed? Just no way to be sure with a yellow chick.

    Agree, a lot of white breeds have dark spots of down. It would be helpful to know what possible breeds were involved in making it.

    It is not too early to tell. You just need to provide us with better info. What color are its legs? What type is its comb? Does it have a beard and muffs? It looks like it from the photo.

    legs are pink, no feather-feet. no beard or muffs. possible breeds are unknown, I got it form a local farmer. it may be a delaware, because of the spots and pink feet... unsure of comb, how do you know at this early age?
