    Hi e1! [​IMG] I am new and I really hope I do this right. I was wondering if anyone can help me out? I have a few chickens that I am not exactly sure what they after looking the breeds up on the net. I will just try 1 pic to begin with since I don't want to upset anyone if it does not work. Thanks in advance for your time.
    PS. please forgive me if I don't get it right.

    Well that is a very small picture but I can say with certainty that it is not a Cochin of any sort. I do not see feathers on it's legs at all.

    What type of comb does it have? Rose? Single? What color are its legs?

    A bigger picture will be needed, but from what I can see, it looks like it doesn't have any feathered feet and maybe a ...... rosecomb..?? My best guess right now would be a bantam wyandotte.

    I'd say Wyandotte as well...the feet look a little white to be a Wyandotte, but definitely has the overall body style of a Wyandotte.

    The comb your bird has is called a Rose comb.
