    Am I mistaken, or is there a breed that the rooster looks similar to a Dominique but the hen looks like a brown leghorn or a Dutch hen? And they both have very large single combs? I looked through the BYC breed section, but didn't find anything that matched what I'm thinking of.

    I have this sweet little one and I'm not exactly sure what breed she (I hope) is. I was told a gold laced wyandotte but she's doesn't look anything like the other three. She's about 5 weeks old. Help, please!

    I am not an expert by any means but it looks like she may have some Andalusian Blue in her background. She is mostly gold laced though just not pure breed imho.

    Pic is kind of blurry, can't see if it's a peacomb. If it is my guess is EE but I'm no expert. Two of my EEs for comparison.

    Thank you! I have never even heard of that breed. Looking it up right now. She's quite pretty, just doesn't look anything like the other three wyandottes. Appreciate the help :)

    You're welcome. Easter Eggers aren't technically a breed but they sure are colorful and often beautiful.

    I agree with Sherloki, that is an Easter Egger pullet.
