    I ordered a SL wyndott roo from MMH and they had an extra (SL Wyndott roo) for free on my packing list. However, The "extra" free Wyndott is not a wyndott at all, as you can tell from the Single comb. Any ideas? I was thinkin some kind of Rock maybe?

    I think some Wyandottes can have a single comb. I know witht he Blue Laced Red Wyandottes it is recommended to mix in some single combed roosters into the breeding flock.

    Single combs in Wyandottes happens occassionally, it's just rare. Some breeders use them, some don't.
