what breed is this?

  1. I bought this chicken as a gold laced wing Wyandotte, but as she grew and feathered up I thought she was a barnevelder, but she doesn't have the roundness of my other barnevelders or the same crop, so now I'm not sure what she is. Could someone help me please.[​IMG]

    Looks like a probably Barnavelder to me.

  4. thank you, I thought that, but she seems to have a different comb, she's about 5mths old and her comb hasn't grown yet, maybe they also made a mistake with her age.

    If it's a pea comb then maybe a dark cornish?

    Agreed.
     
  7. It is a pea comb, that's what had me stumped, I've never had any experience with pea combs, and my two barnevelders have normal combs. I will have look up dark Cornish to see what they look like, thanks for that.

    I would definitely say Dark Cornish if she has the pea comb. When she gets bigger she should have a lot of breast meat when you pick her up and her feathers should be 'hard' and glossy compared to other chickens. Interested to see the outcome.
     
  9. Ok, will post another photo when she gets bigger, she's also much more skittish than my barnies who are very friendly.
