    Can anyone please help me on what kind of chick this is? I know its a standard sized chick but it looks like nothing that I ordered. I'm having trouble figuring it out.

    Really? Well that makes sense because I ordered assorted Wyandotte and they told me they sent me a silver laced, golden laced and a buff. Though I ordered several other breeds along with this, this gal was a mystery to me.

    My guess was going to be silver laced wyandotte...

    Wyandotte, as it has the rose comb. Huge flat area where the comb is.. may be male due to the size and seems to be thickening already at such a young age?

    That flat area looks different than the others so I was curious to what exactly what kind of chick it was. I can tell the golden laced and what I believe the silver laced wyandotte is. I thought a first the hatchery made a mistake and threw in a different chick than what I ordered. Its supposed to be a female too, hmmm..she will be 2 weeks old on Tuesday. I'm new to chickens so I'm still learning.

    Definitely not a silver laced. I don't know what it could be, though. Sorry.
