    I was told when I got this one as a chick that she was a Wyandotte. Well she crows!!! And from what I have read He isn't a Wyanadotte. Would appreciate any feedback on this one. Thanks.[​IMG]

    Hi, he has a single comb so you are right, he is not a Wyandotte. Looks to be a Blue Orpington or a Blue Rock.. Looks more Orpington to me ??

    It has the body type of a Wyandotte, so I would guess that the person that sold it to you really didn't lead you astray. Single combs are not uncommon in Wyandottes (although they should be much more uncommon, imho) and the yellow legs make Orpington not possible. You could show it as a rock, but it doesn't have good type at all (mostly because it's not really a rock). So it's a SC Wyandotte (which means I would eat him).
