|This is a photo progression of my Golden
Laced Wyandotte and Easter Egger.
Comments included. chicks were originally
purchased on 06/13/2007
I originally bought two chicks at a feed store intending
to get a GLW and an EE, The person working at the
feed store had put all the chicks together and didnt
really know enough about chickens to know the difference
in the breeds, (although she thought she did).
The result was that, I first got 2 EE's thinking one
was a GLW, when I figured out both were EE's, I returned
one and picked out a GLW myself.
Although I wanted a darkish colored EE and my original
belief was that Esther would actually turn out to
be a light color, I knew I had to get her anyway because
of the personality she exibited.
She stood out amoungst all the others in that little
brooder box at the feed store.
Winnie, on the other hand, was simply my best guess
at picking out a GLW.
In the past I have looked on this board for pics that
showed a progression of a chick so that I could see
what to expect, and to compare my own chicks for a
variety of reasons including sexing, color, what to
expect from feather pattern, and any anomalies in
I was able to find scattered pics, in most cases,
which never really showed a full progression of a
single chick, so I decided to share my chick’s
progression for the benefit of others. I hope you
find it useful.

A shot that shows their combs at 1 week
Pea Comb Rose Comb
They got named today.
When I got Esther she was standing in front of a
cowering mass of chicks, looking at the people like
she was checking them out.
Winnie follows Esther around and does whatever
If Esther gets on your hand Winne does too, If Esther
eats Winnie eats, If Esther poops, guess what Winnie
