    From the frontal view, it looks like your bird has a rose comb or a pea comb. Being that it's not an EE, I would bet it's a rose comb, in which case Ancona's are out of the picture.

    if you can't see a comb then it isn't an ancona, they have single combs........
    it could be an ee since there is no standard.......where did you get it?

    i got it from someone close y me they did have all their chickens free ranging together tho. i had these pics on another post where someone said it wasnt a EE but possibly the ancona so i was confused as to what it could be

    If she was going to have a single comb it would be notiseable already . She is just a mix . The comb makes me feel like she has wyandotte in her but the wyandotte color will not be visable such as silver laced, or watever color the wyandotte parent was (and we dont even know is she has any wyandotte in her there are alot of breeds with that type comb ) She is going to be a black and white bird . She is just a mutt [​IMG]
