Sorry, here's a better picture .  He's a rose comb.

Unfortunately I won't be able to use him for breeding.  He's got the dreaded feather quality issue.  :barnie

Nice comb!  with the feather issue - that shoots down the theory that the Isabels won't have it like the lavenders do!  too bad that people can't be exempt from it.  He is a pretty boy.

Here are the 11 females I have all in the same pen now -- only the legbands really let me tell the ones from CJWaldon and Cree57i apart -- although the second set is about a month younger than the first 3 that I got.

 

 

here is the older cockerel - 

Cree57i had mentioned that his sickles weren't very developed -- and as you see they are coming in now....

 

 

 

 

sorry for bad light and being in a pet carrier -- but this is the younger cockerel -- his color is more saturated -- and I like that on his wing you can kind of make out the bar -- you can see it on the other cockerel too -- but the light and camera angles I got don't show it. 

 

Love how gorgeous the Isbel plumage is! 

:love

Great photos Lona!

 

I never tire of looking at pictures of certain chickens - Isabel, Legbar and Isbar -- I could sit and do it for hours.  Your birds are really pretty!!

 

Different breed standards require different earlobe color -- Leghorns, I think call for a real pop of white earlobe -- and I know for certain that Legbars standard calls for white earlobes.  Isbars I think can have either -- and egg production is the thing that counts most along with Blue-black-splash - and all of us that love those dark eyes -- but that is a bit off subject. 

 

What is the preferred eye-color of Isabel -- that goes along with the breed too  - right?  anyone know?
