    I have 2 roosters that have single comb and white legs. I have a hen that is single combed and very pale yellow legs. Are they orphingtons or wyondottes with undesireable traits with the single comb? They are all beautiful big ( I would guess weight of around 8lbs.) chickens. I am getting ready to incubate eggs and would like to figure this out. I suppose I could just sell them as golden laced mixed. Thanks for any help.

    The first thing I think is Wyandotte... but he does not have the right comb. I shall do some research! He may be a Wyandotte mix

    I agree. I think they are Wyondotte mixed maybe. I am just going to sell the babies as golden laced mixed. The hen looks just like the roosters only a bit smaller. They are all 3 beautiful. The hen got really sick on me this winter and I didn't think she was going to make it. She is totally back to normal and back in the run with "her roosters". They are super nice birds. Since they were all 3 only a few months old when I got them they get along great. I like to keep as close to pure to the breed as possible but I think they are going to just be my mixed breed.

    Those are single comb Wyandottes. They are culls because of their combs.

    That's what i thought. So does the leg color not matter? guess the cull doesn't matter to me since i won't be breeding them to have purebreds.

    So is it possible to still breed and possibly not have the single comb? If I bred them would there be a possibility of some of the chicks not having the single comb but the rose comb like they are supposed to have?

    Looks like a purebred Golden Laced Wyandotte to me, but with a single comb.
