    I got this little one we call punky at the feed store the other day.

    Punky comes from Ideal.

    Its most likely a white crested black polish. But it could be a silver polish or a mottled houdan.

    Not enough toes for a Houdan, but it is hatchery bird, so anything is possible. I would guess White Crested Black polish

    It is a white crested black. It's feathering out as a typical wcb. The white in the wings will turn to black as the bird matures. There are some working on mottled, but you're not going to get one from a hatchery. Silver polish chicks look totally different, and houdans are bearded and have 5 toes.

    Thanks very much for the replies.

    It was the white feathers that tossed me off.
