Sicilian Buttercup La Flèche cross

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This might sound silly, and just out of my curiosity, but what kind of comb would a Sicilian Buttercup La Flèche cross have?

I love Rosecombs and Silkies. I am new to breeding and have gotten some great cluck-tastic chickens. Since I bred Rosecombs with walnut combs (Thx to Kelsie2290 I got 3 walnut comb chicks in a clutch of 5!) time to try out Carnation combs! Any advice is appreciated! Looking for a breeding offer; La Flèche rooster that is APA approved!!

According to this chart, it's basically an antler comb. I've never seen any real world examples (talk about disappointing) but I do have a friend who swears she has.



Would be an interesting cross to make, certainly.

Wow!! Certainly amazing. I have a Buttercup hen, I just need to hopefully buy a breeding offer from a La Flèche rooster.
