    so when I brought the crew home in the spring I knew zilch about chickens. someone told me this girl was a Columbian wynadotte. I had noticed on some pics they didn't have feathered feet but what did I know and it didn't really matter anyway. Still doesn't really matter- just my own sense of rightness to know what I have- a friend was at a nursery with her kid on a field trip and they had two of my wynadottes but they were brahmas. one had feathered feet and one didn't so now its all out the window. Is there a way to tell> ?

    With those pea combs and feathered legs, they are Light Brahmas, not Columbian Wyandottes.

    This. Wyandottes have rose combs and clean legs. Here's a pic showing different comb types...

    thank you everyone for the info and the compliments. what's so ironic is she was part of a crew of 12 that someone was giving away free-coop, 12 girls, and two roos. I took the prettier roo-bad boy named (Evil) Bud who I did in not long after I got them all. The other roo who was apparently a brahma roo went to a friend (we didn't know he was a roo that night) and two days later she found him a new home (she didn't want any roos). That's what I get for picking the brightly colored guy...ah well. This girl is the only one that is officially named- by the girl who came to do the roof over the run-Gertrude.. She was quite the grump when I was introducing two new cochins but shes gotten over that now. Thanks again for the info all.
