black comb and wattles, what is it???

post #1 of 11

I have 4 black pullets, 2 of them have all black combs and wattles.  The other 2 have red combs and wattles and I believe they are BA's  Does anyone know of a breed that has a black comb and wattle???

Sumatras have black combs and wattles, but I have a feeling the ones with the black combs and wattles in YOUR flock are just undeveloped pullets.  As they get older, the combs, faces and wattles will redden just like the others.

My pullets are almost 16 weeks old.  They also have black eyes and a greeish tint to their feathers in the sun.  They sure are beautiful  cool

Silkies have black skin, bones combs, meat, and wattles.

Could you put some pics of the chickens on here? hmm

Wait a bit longer...they should start getting the red in their face in another month...possibly two more months.
