    From what I can conclude this may be a golden laced old english bantam. Has hen feathering, has never crowed, but the size of the comb & waddles has me confused. At first thought it may be a sebright, but they have small rose combs, not large single combs. Need the help of knowledgeable chicken friends! Any help greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!
