Crazy comb question with pic! - Page 2

Oh yeah, lots! Well I may not have explained it good.... I probably should have just gotten a picture. But I do believe my wyandotte hens have a point at the end, just not all the small points throughout like my chick has. Thanks!

A roosters comb will be more pronounced and such details easier to see.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Yep, here's a Wyandotte hen rose comb



And this guy is a Hamburg, but he has a rose comb, and we,can already tell a big difference, even though he's a young cockerel and not yet full grown... It'll get even lumpier and weirder wink.png

Not the greatest pic, but a typical hatchery Wyandotte hen. I put her under a barred straight combed rooster and got

 

This guy, among others. Nice rose comb.

 

 

I agree the bird in the first pic is a cockerel. They've got more defined points on the rose combs.
