    Looks like a pullet (female) to me.

    Is she a bantam? Her stance is very gamey, and she's very slim.

    X2. I agree. Not rounded like a slw. Reminds me of a seabright.

    Me too but the head shape and comb are very much Wyandotte. OPs got an interesting bird...

    Definitely a pullet, but doesn't look like a pure Wyandotte.

    Excellent! Thanks guys! I'm happy to have a mixed breed as long as it isn't a Roo ;-) Should have signed up to this page a couple of years ago! Do people know about ducks in this page too??

    I don't have any pictures of my Wyandottes, so this is off of the internet. I don't have a rooster, I have 4 hens that look like these. Your chick is beautiful, however I agree it is more gamey. The body type and tail reminds me more of a Old English Game Fowl, but I haven't seen one in that color. Perhaps she is mixed? Does the breeder have other breeds that you can see or ask her about?

    Thanks guys, could easily be mixed, breeder has lots of breeds! Be interesting to see how it turns out... She is fitting in nicely with the others who are under a year old! Happily came out to free range ;-)
