We got our first chicks from a local farmstand this spring and selected six different breeds so that we'd be able to tell the girls apart. We had two that were supposed to be a copper marans and a silver wyandotte, respectively. Well, the darker of the two turned out to be our wyandotte, while our other girl has grown into some beautiful black and white feathers of her own. The pattern is almost the inverse of our silver-laced. We're quite happy with her, but we'd be even happier if we knew what she was.
