    This is one of my parents birds that was purchased from the feed store as a chick that was labeled as a wyandotte. However, it looks nothing like the other 2 wyandottes that they purchased at the same time. In fact it has a straight comb, not the walnut/rose comb of a wyandotte. Is it a gamebird? Thanks so much!

    We bought 2 chicks from the straight run bin at Tractor Supply that seem to be single combed Silver Laced Wyandottes. From what I have read single combs do occur in wyandottes, though they are a disqualifier.

    Nope, not a Wyandotte or gamefowl, just a cross.

    but if it was from a feedstore unless the feedstore orders from a random mixed breeder then i doubt a hatchery would sell a mix.

    Really strange thing is that it came from a larger feed store and all the other breeds they got there (and the birds I have purchased there) were all labeled correctly. I have no idea what happened with this lady!
