    I ordered six Plymouth barred rock sexed hens. I ended up with I think are to silver laced Wyandottemy.

    It's a silver laced something, the body type really doesn't look wyandotte. Wyandottes are also supposed to have a rose comb, but that's not a given for breed as straight combs do sometimes crop up even in quality stock. Whatever she is, she's not a barred rock, but she is female and should give you nice brown eggs.

    If the comb is a rose color then I would guess it is a Sebright Silver Rose Comb. Wyandottes usually have a fuller looking body unless she is really young still.
