    I got my chicks from a local ranch store. I've never gotten a blue laced red wyandotte before, but this chick seems a bit dark to me. As it gets older I'm seeing a lot of white and a lot of black. What do you guys think, did they sell me a silver laced???
    First picture is from their first day home.

    These two are from today, two weeks after coming home. The feathers are coming in white and I'm not seeing any blue???

    I think silver laced but I'm not positive.

    That's what I'm thinking... The initial coloring was a bit different but the older it gets, the more it's looking like my silver laced from last year [​IMG]

    Really doesn't look like a wyandotte to me. At least not a silver laced, gold laced, or blue laced red.

    Hmmm... Any idea what it could be instead? At the feed store it was in the bin with the silver laced pullets as well but I wasn't paying attention to what else was supposed to be in there.

    Just a guess, but looking at some pictures, any chance this is an australorp chick?

    We got a wellsummer, buff orpington, golden sex-link, and what is now apparently a mystery!

    Oh no!! Guess I've got an australorp this year. And I also guess I'll be going to a different place to try to find my blue laced red this year! Thanks for the input!
