No I don’t unfortunately. Mine was the only chicken I didn’t worry about, she was slow growning and last to lay. But she still has a tiny comb and waddles. I posted a picture, you know, any excuse to share our chickens 😂

Awesome! I hope yours is an australorp then. Enjoy your new new flock - and the original one too! I wish you all the best with them!

Wyandottes are supposed to have rose combs, but the chick in the photo has a single comb.

Australorp seems like a good guess.

That is what I am thinking too. I am wondering of she is actually hen since she was in the wrong brooder when I picked her. Any idea on how to tell this early on?

Not a Wyandotte as it has a single comb and not a rose. What hatchery is carrying Chocolate Orpingtons?
Ah, that makes sense! I'm wondering if maybe if she is a Black Copper Maran...maybe? Haha what do you think?

I got my Chocolate Orpingtons from TSC. I had to because they look like a classic chicken and also I read they can be rare?
