    So, I bought my chicks at my local feed store, and was sold a chick as a "BLRW"...and at only a day or two old, I couldn't tell, as I 've never had Wyandottes before now. Well, now that she is 2 1/2 weeks old, it is evident that she is not a BLRW...I think she is a banty of some kind??? She is impossible tiny, especially when compared to one of my EE's that actually younger than she is!

    Any ideas would be most appreciated and helpfull - we'll keep her no matter what, but I would like to have an idea about what she might be...sorry the picture quality is poor, I had to take them with my phone...

    Meet Lily...

    Hi There,
    Based on my very limited experience, her face looks just like my Blue Wyandotte's did at that age. I'm sure someone else here will have more ideas. Whatever she is....she's cute! Enjoy.

    Could you get a picture of the baby's comb?

    She doesn't really have one...I did search for blue wyandottes, and she does look an awful lot like that...I just wish she wasn't advertised as a BLRW!!! [​IMG]

    If she doesn't really have a comb, it is possible she's a wyandotte. As chicks, their combs are basically non-existent. They are rose-combed birds.
