Deleware vs. Columbian Wyandotte Pictures?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Would like to make sure I can tell the difference so i don't chose the wrong breed. Any pictures? Thank you for all/ANY help.

Wyandottes have rose combs and solid black hackles and are very round birds. Delawares have single combs and barred hackles--Delaware females have black tail feathers edged in white, but Delaware roosters have barred tail feathers. Other than being black and white birds, Wyandottes and Delawares look nothing alike. See my avatar for a Delaware male.
