    Trying to figure out if this is a rhode island red bantam or blue bearded d'anver bantam. I had the egg marked as a d'anver but from what I can find outthey are a different color but I thought rhode islands had red on them.

    Not a Rhode Island Red, as they should have a single comb (from the photo, it looks like it has a flat rose comb). It must be a D'Anvers.

    Rhode island red can be rose combed too. I have one myself.
    D'Anvers can come in different varieties/colors if thats what you mean. Or do you mean the color of the egg?

    though thats not a RIR

    Its comb its not as pronounced as my others. I have full standard rhode islands, barred rock, and sex link chicks and all their combs are a bit raised up and single. The chick in photo is fairly flat and not rigid.

    All my rhode island bantams are single comb. I was talking about how yellow he is because all the d'anver chicks I see online are a sort of blue.

    Do you know what color the parents are to your chick?

    Okay... gonna try to explain.

    When two blue birds are bred together, chicks will be as follows
    1 black, 2 blue, 1 splash.

    I think you have a splash D'Anver.

    Let me find a better way to explain this...
