I got this chick at the feed store and it was sold as a a silver laced wyandotte, but once I got it home, I saw that it has a single comb, but the other chicks look to have a rose comb. Sooo, what is this little one?
This is a back shot

And the front

Even if it is a single comb, hatchery birds often don't stick to the breed conformation.

It is from a hatchery, I'm positive that it is a single comb, so maybe it's not up to standard...

Yup, happens all the time.
Don't worry about it, she'll still be beautiful.
