    Love the explanation of each type of comb, but there are no pictures in this article for visuals on what each comb should look like.

    Would be a 5 star if it had pictures. Add pictures and I will re-review it.

    I found the layout and information very interesting. The descriptions of the different types is good. I did feel like I was waiting for more at the end though. Example pictures with the descriptions of the types would be a great addition. Overall, nice article. Thanks.

    This is probably gonna get me banned but here goes,
    Why would any of the Mods drag up a pretty near useless article from a 10 year member that doesn't hardly ever post? This is from 2012, and hasn't been improved upon by the original poster (or anyone else) and doesn't seem that it ever will be. I understand that the ancients are due respect, but only where respect is due. If it had been fixed way back in 2012 or even 2013 I could see including it in this great knowledge base.
    I doubt this article was written by the original Chicken Lady, who is most knowledgable. After reading many of her articles I can't understand why, if she actually wrote this, is unable to correct or improve upon this article.
    To all my friends I say good bye. After speaking this truth, you probably will never get to hear from me again after being banned.

    The information in the table is really hard to read in mobile view. I would also like to see information about comb faults such as inverted comb, which is a recessive trait seen in pea, rose and sometimes single comb breeds.
