Do any of your Chickens have no comb or a flat comb? - Page 2

post #11 of 17

I'm not familiar with rose combs, but most EE's have pea combs.  The combs on my EEs were still kind of flat at 7-8 weeks - yours may still be waiting to pop up too.

These are pullets, but at 6 weeks roos don't always have a very mature comb either.

Your chicken looks to me like a young rooster and a red sex-link.

There has been speculation that my hen is a dark cornish-but she has a rose comb.  Here is a pic, what do you think, dark cornish or GLW??

Looks like a cushion comb, not sure of the genetics of those.

I was wondering about cushion combs.  I just don't see any sign of anything on him.  But even a cushion comb has to plump up eventually.  If he has made it to 6 weeks with nothing and it has been red for so long, is there a chance that he will not have one?

What was the latest that you had combs show up?

His comb will fill out eventually. He looks to have a cushion or strawberry type. Won't know until he matures a bit. It is definitely there, though.
