    I got this hen give to me a few days ago. I don't know if she is a certain breed or just a mutt. I think a mutt, but maybe someone can tell for sure what. I know the one is GLW, but what about the dark one?

    She looks like a GLW crossed with a Barred rock

    The GLW has a single comb, she's probably mixed too. It is possible to get pure ones with single combs, but I hear it is a rare throw back.
