    I brought this chick home on a whim, and have no clue what breed it is. I'm not even positive that I picked a pullet. But I was wondering if anyone could help me to figure out what she/he is???

    I'm no expert, but to me it looks like a Delaware pullet. We think our 5 week old roo is a Delaware and he looks slightly like that, but roo-ish [​IMG]

    Looks like a Delaware Pullet, but her tail feathers look like a cochins! [​IMG] Probably a mix. [​IMG]

    That is not a Delaware. It is a Columbian Wyandotte. Notice that it has a Rose comb instead of a Single comb.

    I see the rose comb now and it does look more like a wyandotte in type, but that is very poor coloring for a columbian wyandotte, the hackle and tail feathers should have stronger black columbian ticking and and the rest of the body shouldnt have any black on it so it is either a really poorly colored hatchery wyandotte or a mix.

    My first thought was wyandotte, very sweet looking pullet.
