Correct Rose Comb?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
It took me forever to get this picture behind a blue canvas, and I want to ask, it that curved spike on Pok's rose comb fit to standards? He's a purebred Rosecomb Bantam.

The curved spike is not preferred but is accepted. Most breeders will try and get rid of it for the next generation. I would suggest buying a Rosecomb hen from a reputable breeder and breeding him. The offspring will have better examples of the comb.

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!!

I'd imagine he's rosecombed New Hampshire Red.
