    Hey guys!!

    We picked some random chicks from my boyfriends moms chick order and we thought we grabbed was a Russian Orloff but now that she's feathering...... I'm thinking shes no orloff! I'm thinking perhaps a Barnevelder or maybe an EE (but I have lots of those and this little girl doesn't have a pea comb) or maybe she's a random other breed that I haven't even thought of. Anyways here's some pictures of Bandit let me know if you have any guesses!!

    Oh my! We didn't even order wyandottes!! That would be awesome we've had them before and absolutely loved them, I think you may be right after looking at barnevelders vs golden laced wyandottes.

    I cannot see the comb, barnevelder have a single comb and the lacing isn't that light in color, Wyandotte have a rose comb, so check the comb type.

    It's definitely a single comb. But in saying that our old GLW had a single comb to. I'd be so happy if she is a GLW! My boyfriends mom might be a little surprised though but she'd love them to

    It could be a lighter colored barnevelder, I have the double laced but I see there are some that are lighter laced, or like you said a single combed Wyandotte. Should be interesting to see how it develops.

    I thought a gold laced Wyandotte also, is it just hatchery bird, that could explain incorrect comb / etc.
