If it has feathers on it's legs then it is definitely a mixed breed.

Well, I guess I should just wait and see what it comes out to be! Glad it isn't a problem, just a different type of comb! Very exciting!

Thanks everyone!

I had one wyandotte chick that had an inverted point on the rose comb. It's hard to make out the details of your chick's comb, but I was thinking that it might have the same thing. Here's a photo of the one I had so that you can compare.

2 dogs, 6 cats, 40 chickens (australorps, wyandottes, and easter eggers), lots of tropical fish, and a toddler.

I got better photos of it's comb!



Also, it looks like she has red on her bottom jaw line. Thoughts?

It may be an inverted rose comb although I'm not very familiar with them. The red bottom of it's jaw line is the start of wattles! big_smile.png
