    I bought a few White Leghorn chicks last week..
    And, noticed one of them had one had a couple small black dots on him/her,
    wondered about it, but figured maybe it's normal - the black will go away?
    Noooow.. Another one is getting black marking on his/her wings!
    ......What kind of chick could this be? lol

    Are you sure that's a Whie Leghorn? It looks like a Japanese Bantam! I have one that looks just like that! Do they have feathered feet?
    A better picture might help.

    The same thing happened to me. I was told mine was a leghorn, and then her wings started coming in brown and black. She's almost full grown now and she turned out to be a Delaware.
