    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?

    Looks like a SLW to me. Looks like a rose comb from the pic.

    Quote:Are you positive? Does it have one ridge or is it flattish? hard to tell really with such young chicks.
    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... [​IMG]
