    As soon as I saw this hen at a petting zoo, I wanted to know what breed she is. I figured by the design of her feathers, she was a Wyandott, but what type? Her feathers were black laced, but I couldn't find on the site database what exact type she was.

    It looks like a partridge Cochin to me. Bantam sized.

    Penciled Partridge Wyandotte.
    Cochin's have a single comb and from what I can see in this photo- this one has a rose comb.
    She sure is pretty! [​IMG]

    You guys think so? Hmmm.

    This was the picture of the Wyandotte Hen on the BYC breeds page, thats why I thought so.

    Also I realized I left the "E" off of Wyandotte. [​IMG]

    Rose comb is dominant in the Wyandotte. Very pretty hen.

    The first picture is a partridge patterned bird and the other is a laced pattern.

    I tell you what, I haven't pet a chicken since probably I was a little kid and she was so soft, I couldn't believe it. I had to have my wife pet her just to make sure I wasn't day dreaming. [​IMG]

    She also loved being pet, I wanted to scoop her up and take her home!
