    There are, I believe, seven different types of combs on chickens. Yours may have a Buttercup type comb as it has two sides to it. If you can post a picture that would help us. Also - what breed of chicken is it - that would tell us what type of comb it should have.

    Do you mean one comb growing beside the other? Or one split in half?
    I have a turken rooster with 3 wattles.. His name is Yikes....
