    I'm not sure what kind of chicken I have, thought it was a Dom, but her tail is very short, so now I'm thinking maybe a barred Wyandotte... They look pretty simular in pics, only difference I can see is that Wyandottes seem to have a flatter back due to the shorter tail. Can anybody help?

    Can you post a picture? That would help us out.

    It's neither. Wrong leg colour. Probably a cross of some sort.
