    i got mine from a woman about 80 miles away and i could have sworn she said it was an orloff. she doesn't have a single comb and really there isn't enough of any comb for me to tell what kind she does have but your right she doesn't have beard or muffs that i can see so i wonder what she is? she's real sweet lets me hold her and doesn't make it too hard to catch her, like some of the other chicks running around in the brooder.
