    is it possible that this is just a blrw? Anyone know? Now I'm curious and it will eat at me for the next 2 or 3 weeks [​IMG].

    My guess would be that it has to do with body type, ect. Like maybe it's type is closer to the way there were historically. Not sure though.

    When I was a member of the wyandotte breeders club there were a couple breeders with red wyandotte bantams. I have never heard of them being 'old fashioned', could you be thinking of rose combed rhode island reds?

    I don't have a clue what they are [​IMG]. I spoke to a guy who said he was getting some "old fashioned red wyandottes" in a few weeks. Of course, I'll be calling back to see if he has them and I'll be driving the hour drive anyway so I just might stop by and see them [​IMG]. I was just wondering if they were legit since I've never heard of them or seen them and, I wanted to see a pic of some. He said he was getting RIR, doms, and ofrw.

    At the bottom of this page is a pic of a bantam red wyandotte roo: http://members.ozemail.com.au/~whitewyandottes/other.htm
