    I thought this was a silver laced wyandotte, but it doesnt look like some other pics i've seen of others. Its legs are grey.

    Thats not a SLW, with gray legs it may be an EE. It is a pretty little chick though! [​IMG]

    Hi again! Your little one looks just like my Easter Eggers. My girls legs started off sort of grayish and got greener by the day....

    Good Luck with your "kids" [​IMG]

    Hi amaliayosa,
    Here is a picture of my golden laced wyandotte.The silver laced will look similar to the golden when little.
    You still have a cute little EE
    Best Wishes,

    Here is a pic from feathersite

    When the feathers come in they should be black and white.

    I know exactly that the chick is and it is NOT an ee. The scientific name for this species is Cutimous. Also know as Cute for short

    it looks exactly like my bantie that I got from TSC a few weeks ago! mine has yellow legs though, so mine isn't an ee. my son named it Chipmunk because of the "chipmunk stripe" and my daughter named it Strawberry-- so her name is Strawberry Chipmunk. I haven't the slightest idea what breed mine is. the other bantie, Snowie, is all white.
