Smushed like combs?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So my 12 week old chicks started getting their combs in a few weeks ago.  I noticed when it happened but forgot to ask and now some of the others are looking like it.  A couple of my EE's have smushed like combs coming in.  Is this normal?

The girls:

Easter Eggers-Coconut, Gold n' Plump, Stir Fry

Australorps-Curry, Minnie, Kung Poa, Blossom

Do you have pictures?

Not sure what you mean by smushed comb?

Is it a pea comb?
