    Not sure on your chicken, but it's certainly a pretty bird!

    polish and la fleche get the horns or v shaped combs but its not a polish cross as there is no crest of any size, and as far as I know the la fleche only comes in black......off to see if they come in more colors

    ok found some google pictures of different colors, do you have any older ones or know if your friends adult birds have white ear lobes?

    Good questions! I just noticed how long it's legs are. Do any of the bigger breeds of game type chickens have a V comb??

    Thanks for the le fletche idea, I have thought the same but never had them. I only have 2 and when I was up in jersey ncouldnt get close enough to notice a v-comb! Also they told me they are pullets, but I beg to differ! Going to look at polish cause never seen either. Sorry im new to the chicken world but love the input! Thanks again

    It develops with maturity (which is why I asked if you seen the parent birds), so as they age you should see it if they are pure la fleche. Might even see it if they are mixes of a la fleche.
