    Not a true wyandotte has a single comb, could be a cross

    Damn, I’m trading a barred rock for him because I wanted a Wyandotte cockerel to go with my silver and gold pullets. Trying to move toward Wyandotte’s only

    Not a Wyandotte because he has a single comb and not a rose comb

    Don't feel bad, I didn't notice comb right off either, was looking at the feathers.

    He is an incomplete Partridge pattern. And I agree with the others he isn't a Wyandotte. Comb is wrong as is body type. First thing to look for with a Wyandotte is the rose comb. Also square, heavy build and yellow legs.

    Probably wait till my pullets grow out and just order some fertile Wyandotte eggs. Will check here for reputable places to order from first. Lesson learned lol
