    I have two chickens that look alike EXCEPT ONE THING. One is a Buttercup and has the double comb BUT the other has a FLAT comb. What breed is it if any one knows. Thanks[​IMG]

    The bird pictured looks like a Buttercup pullet. Do you have a better picture of her head and also a picture of the other bird?

    Yes she IS a buttercup and has the double comb, but the other that looks exactly like her has a FLAT comb, just flat and is smooth, what kind would she be? With a flat comb

    I didn't realize that buttercups have green legs. That chicken in pic looks to have green ones, is it possible it is a mixed

    Well I bought 16 "rare" breeds and they are not suppose to be mixed.

    I just looked at some others online and they are buttercups with greenish legs, maybe because she is still a pullet

    A better pic of the bird in question would sure help. I was thinking maybe a golden Campine, but they have straight combs. I can't see leg color on your bird in question, and a close pic of the comb in question would be great. Forgive me, but I've had too many times when someone says their bird "looks just like" another bird pictured, then turns out to have several differences the OP just didn't know to look for, like leg color, body shape, earlobes, etc.
