    I hatched a bunch of mixed breeds with some BLR Wyandottes and I picked this one out thinking it was a Wyandotte. The feathering has me confused. It does not have a straight comb but there were some EE cross eggs in the incubator which have pea combs but this chick has no muff or beard. Any thoughts?

    My broody hatched some EE/Wyandotte crosses, and a lot of them have rose combs and no muffs.

    It's very pretty!
    The coloring looks quite a bit (but not completely) like the female version of the color pattern called "partridge." I used to have some bantam partridge wyandottes.

    The EEs were crossed with a New Hampshire Red.

    The EEs are mine and the BLRW eggs were from someone else and my EEs have beards. But back to the question, BLRW or not?

    Nope, not laced... The color is reminiscent of Partridge if you ask me...
