    Hi,
    I'm trying to decide if I think Henrietta is a Henri - LOL! What do you all think? Her/His comb is more developed than my other two 5 week olds (will be 5 weeks on Friday).

    Oh, in picture two, the sun is shining right in my buff orp's mouth making her beak look redder than normal, so picture number four is more accurate of her color of beak / comb.

    I don't think she's a Wyandotte. She appears to have a single comb (Wyandottes have a rose comb). Looks like a barred rock, to me. But I'd say a girl.

    It's so hard to say. Hopefully, it's a pullet. I have had Leghorn hens with bigger combs than the roos..lol

    Quote:X2 I was going to say it looked more like a Barred Rock than a Wyandotte.

    Quote:Ohhh I would actually love it if she was a barred rock ... I was just told she was a wyandotte at the feed store.
