    Which chicken out there looks the LEAST like the breed it's supposed to be? Tell me why! No prizes, just a fun contest. Here's mine:
    Penguin, a hatchery bird, has a crooked tail, crooked toes, wrong comb, floppy comb, doesn't lay, blind in one eye, and one pupil looks like it drips into the colored eye part. She came like this! (Silver Laced Wyandotte) But I love her!
    Not a good pic

    OH!OH!OH! I've got a great one. Here's my hatchery barred rock in front taking a dust bath. Yes, I'm certain it's supposed to be a barred rock. I got 2, the other looks fine.

    Chanticleer, supposedly a Dutch bantam, but a completely wrong body. and a red ear lobe. If you were to first see him, you would never suspect him to be Dutch. He is still very cute and sweet, though.

    Here's my Easter Egger who was sold to me as a partridge rock. i know easter eggers don't have a breed standard, but she doesn't have any muffs and a very scarce beard. Here she is: (sorry about the bad pic)

    chicken boy sam-
    She looks like a Golden Laced Cornish, not an Easter Egger. I think there's been a mix up....
