    This is curly, I have no Idea what kind, but his/her wing feathers kind of curl around, and the tail feathers look separated and poofed out. I am sure someone will know for sure because should be something common, came in a brown egg layer package from MM. Thanks in advance.


    Just for your info legs are orange/yellow.

    I'm gonna guess a Silver Laced Wyandotte. I've had some chicks with crazy feathers that grew up to have normal feathering. This one at 5 weeks didn't have the smoothest of feathering, but I couldn't tell you who she is now:

    Oh, that is good they are very pretty, when do they get their real colors? They change so quick when they are young, do they continue changing that quick or will they look the same for awhile and then change? Thank you everyone, ever so helpful for this new to little chickens lady.... oh and my DH has started the coop [​IMG]

    I would have to agree as I also thought SLW before even reading the other post.

    The real colors will be very similar to what she has now, but bolder and even prettier. [​IMG]
