    so i have this hen (rooster?) ---auracana mixed silver laced cochin--- and she (he?) crows, doesn't lay eggs, and has spurs.
    BUT. she (he? ugh whatever I'll just call it "it") it doesn't have a big crown or waddles. try to figure this one out cuz I sure can't!!!

    if you post a pic, that will help... also, (I'm assuming your chicken is Easter Egger x Silver Laced Cochin) Easter Eggers and Easter Egger "crosses" tend to have small or no wattles at all... They will usually have small pea or other mixed looking combs...

    Not all breeds of chickens had large, straight combs. It sounds like you have a roo but if you can post a picture I'm sure some of the users who are experienced with those breeds can tell you for sure.

    I forgot to sum it all up...

    You probably have a rooster with a pea comb and small/no wattles.
