    I bought five pullets at Rural King last weekend. One was supposed to be a blue Cochin, but it's obvious that they gave me a different breed. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Not a cochin of any color. I'd call the store and see what other breeds they had.

    Looks like a golden Lakenvelder but that's not a breed you'd normally find at a feed store.

    Here are two new pictures. They did have "buff Lakenvelder" chicks listed on the sign. So maybe...

    What kind of comb does it have? Your photo flash blurs out the detail of the comb. If it is a Lakenvelder, it should have a single comb.

    If it is a Gold Laced Wyandotte (which I am thinking less likely with these second photos)...it will have a horseshoe shaped based for the rose comb....with the luck running down the beak.

    It has a single comb. So, Lakenvelder it it. Thanks for the help!
