    I have two 6 month old roosters. They are from a school project so I have no idea what they are. One is a beautiful red and has a tall, fat comb and the other is black with tan and white splotches and has a short, fat comb. My problem is their combs fall over their eyes. I don't know if this is uncomfortable for them or I'm just worried for nothing. I read up on trimming their combs but, should I? Help me! I don't want them uncomfortable!

    Dubbing is the term for cutting a roosters comb.it is not necessary and I would not do it. they used to do it to fighting birds. There floppy combs are perfectly normal.
    Welcome and enjoy!
