    Hatchery quality silver laced wyandotte would be my guess. She's cute!

    she is very cute and such a sweetheart ! The day I got her was when I was going to pk up two barred rocks and I come across this one and had to have her. The girl at the feed store knew she wasn't a barred rock but the people they get their chicks from swear they only sent barred rocks that day:D is there anything in particular I need to know about wyandotts ?

    Well I only have one wyandotte so I don't have much experience to go off of, but my Lucy was my friendliest chick by far. Eventually they all got used to me but she was my buddy from the get-go! She's definately a firecracker, tons of personality and runs everywhere she goes. She likes to ride around on my shoulder and has even jumped on my head! Also has a distinct voice from the rest. As sweet as she is to me though, she's a bully with the other chickens. I've heard that from other people as well, so just keep an eye on her behavior and nip any bullying in the bud! Unfortunately I didn't do that and now have a serious feather picking problem because a few others learned it from her.
    Good luck with her!

    Looks like she'll be a bantam silver lace.
