    7 month old LF/bantam cross rooster--"Quinn". I can't really describe his comb...is it just considered a blob? [​IMG] Or a pea comb that turned into a blob?

    Might have to get a better picture.

    I didn't expect that unusual comb out of him as a chick...

    But he was just a random cross, so I didn't know what to expect. [​IMG]

    KIND OF LOOKS LIKE A WALNUT OR A CUSHION COMB?

    Interesting! Thanks for the response! He does have Silkie in his heritage...either his grandfather or great-grandfather...I've never heard of a cushion comb. Will have to look it up.

    It's a funky comb.

    Seriously, it's like Easter egger colors--there's not a specific name for it. You can tell he has silkie back there somewhere, and probably straight comb, but it's not a "type" of comb.
     
  8. I have never seen a comb like that before. It's cool!

    I got a variety of combs from his brothers, as well. This is the dad, who is half Silkie:

    I'm inexperienced with identifying combs, but they all seem quite different to me.

    [​IMG] I agree. He is a complete mix, so I could get anything. I love all the different combinations I get with Silkie mixes, present or not present: leg feathering, blue ears, "top hat", tons of colours, combs, etc.
