    Wow! That's a really abnormal Bielefelder comb, for sure. If there was a SOP, this would be a cull. Bummer!

    Total bummer!! He is a beauty in every other way. I don't know anyone else that has them and thought it was this breed. I have two young ones that came as packing peanuts from Greenfire farms. Hopefully they won't have it. Pam

    Thank you DesertChic. The coop and runs are all new. Feel free to look at my photos in my profile. I started my chicken endeavor back in Sept.

    Wow! That's a lot of foraging fried chicken on the hoof! Are you raising for meat or eggs or both? DH and I are such softies towards chickens we switched to eating turkey not to feel like cannibals - haha! Nice roomy area/setup you have for your girls!

    Sylve, I'm raising for both meat and eggs. Yea, I'll have some heavy culling to do. I'm giving the Bieles a try for this. I'm really hoping they work out. And thanks for the compliment on the setup. :)

    They are 2013. I wonder if the person who asked the question has them from 2013 and if this is a gentic trait in this line. Pam

    I'll also be waiting to see if the eggs you hatched from me have this or not.
