    OK, at first I thought this chick was dirty so I tried washing it off. Did not come off and now I noticed another one with the same coloring coming in. I forgot to write down when I got these chicks all I remember is the white ones were a week old and the black ones hatched the morning I went to buy them from the guy. I think this is a pullet also. Excuse the dirty feet, need to clean box in the brooder they are still in.

    Looks like a white leaking gold, but I'm not sure if that is even possible, since white hides colors. Could be a very, very light buff. [​IMG]

    Your chick is White with Buff tracings on the breast feathers. It happens frequently with incomplete expression of of certain genes. I think it is a pullet.

    I went back through pictures I had of these chicks when they were younger. The two that have that coloring on them now looked like this when they were younger.
