    Hi, my flock is a mixed bunch of Buff Orpingtons (Rooster and Hens, a few Barred Rocks and Australorp hens and one Jersey Giant hen. Out of the this springs hatch appears this good looking guy.

    I need help in Identifying this cockerel.... I hope you know!

    Do you mean he's a product of your mixed backyard flock?
    He looks like a Wyandotte, but with a single comb.

    Junebuggena, yes his is a product of a mixed backyard flock. Apparently, there must be a Wyandotte gene in there somewhere.

    I agree someone had lacing somewhere, but he really doesn't look like a Wyandotte as far as shape. he's no particular breed, just a barnyard mix.

    Yes but, a barnyard mix that isn't afraid of SNOW. Good for him - he is a real looker too.

    Yes, my flock has to deal with snow and the cold, which both are late in coming this year.
