    Coloring-wise it kinda looks like a dark cornish hen to me. I couldn't find a pic of a brown laced wyandotte

    M guess is dark cornish also. Is she bantam-sized or standard?

    It's a Dark Cornish-that's not a guess, that's what she is. I don't know of a Brown Laced Wyandotte?

    Quote:Agreed. There isn't a brown laced Wyandotte. That's a Cornish, definitely.

    [​IMG] Looks exactly like my Dk Cornish pullets, mine are bantams but look just like standards. They are beautiful birds, mine aren't too friendly though... [​IMG]

    Great!! Thanks everyone. She has pretty coloring, but is pretty skittish. Her friend that she came with - the white cochin- is friendly... and so soft.
