    I have had these girls since last fall. Not quite sure what they are, but think they are Wydonettes (sp) What do you all think?

    Thanks mlheran, the gal I bought them from didn't know what kind they were. I have 4 SLW, 26 BR's, 8 RIR, 12 Production Red chicks, 12 Black sex links, 7 Leghorns, 26 Buff Orpington's, 2 Black Astraulops, 2 Araucauna's.
    In March I bought the BR's, Araucauna's, BO's, In April I bought the BA's, and just yesterday I had to buy the BSL's and PR's.

    One on right is Wyandotte-rose comb, the one on the left could be a rock-single comb.

    I'm going to be getting a Wyandotte. I just read last night on one of the hatchery websites that wyndotes DO produce single comb offspring.
    Of coarse they arnt used for breeding by the hatcheries.
    But i'm not an expert so I cant say which it is.

    It's possible to get a single comb, its because the chick's parents each had that recessive gene for it.
