    My little RIR's have had really noticeable little combs for awhile now...but my EE's almost looks like it's missing, it's really flat and almost smooth. Is this "normal" for these type of chickens?

    Totally normal! I had an EE with a cushion comb. It started flat and smooth and got wider.

    Completely normal, and as it gets older and closer to point of lay the comb will redden and puff up a bit.
