    I have a GLW with a straight comb, it happens with hatchery quality birds. She does have some lacing like you would see on a GLW, but also has some odd markings. She's the right color. Could be a very, very poor quality GLW.

    I'm not seeing EE or BSL.

    someone could have brought a mixed chick in and then stole a chick.

    What did it look like as a chick? I was thinking BSL, like someone else said. That's not quite the pattern that one of mine has but the amount of brown and everything else looks similar. They are solid babies, the GLW are kind of mottled.
    The coloring looks EE, but usually you get the poofy cheeks and greenish legs (I know they are mutts and can be anything basically but most EEs have those characteristics).

    Quote:I don't remember exactly, since this is my parent's bird, but I don't remember it looking much different from the other 2 wyandottes that they purchased. I will see if I can get a better picture of it and post it later. When it starts laying, maybe I will have a better idea of what breed it is. What color eggs do Wyandottes lay?

    Thanks!
