Comb Size

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Ok, really new here. How do you increase comb size?

 

I'm gaining an understanding of comb traits and am really fascinated with the La Flèche, Sicilian Buttercups, and Houdans. 

The problem I have with the 1st and 3rd are the sizes of the comb.  Is there a way to breed a larger comb type by bringing in, say a Redcap (or any breed with a large comb), then selecting back to La Flèche or Houdan types?

Breeds are bred according to the Standard of Perfection .
Are you wanting to deviate from that?
