    If that's a rose comb-she could be a Blue Laced Red Wyandotte(splash color)-her pattern/lacing is not what I would expect for that coloration, so she could be a mix.

    looks like a wyandotte mix...did she come from a hatchery or a breeder?

    she could be a very poor example of a wyandotte if they get their chicks from a hatchery but i know some stores get theirs from local breeders so there is a chance that thats what they did and she is a mix
