    We "rescued" this girl when she was just a couple of weeks old. She was an unwanted gift and the receiver didn't know what to do, nor did he know the breed. We've had a number of different breeds in the past, but I have long forgotten how the determine what breed she might be. Her legs are black with orange undertones. Her single comb is a dark pink. Any ideas?

    Looks like a Barred Rock to me as it has a single comb. I'm guessing the legs are yellow? A Cuckoo would have white legs I believe....

    Doms should have rosecombs. So, I don't think it is a Dom. What color are the legs?

    Quote: Sounds like she has yellow legs with a dusky wash down the front, then. She's a Barred Rock.
