    Ok here is a couple of my GLW's. Question is about the combs. If you look closely the one on the right is single and the one on the left is bifurcated. Is single comb a hen? Most of them are the bifurcated comb.

    OK so I'm double posting. But I think I figured out this pic thing. This is my helper (she thinks she's a parrot )

    Quote:Wyandotte are supposed to have Rose combs. I think that's what you are calling bifurcated. The single comb is probably a throwback to something in their breeding. I have a Blue Laced red wyandotte chick with a single comb.

    ETA: Nice coop and nice helper!

    Quote:Heard rumor that they have a large auction in Hunstville every saturday at One I think it was. There is also one outside of Bentonville somewhere.

    As for the Fort Smith area, there is a flea market, but not an auction that I am aware of.


    ETA: Anyone interested in Sumatras? I have 4 males that aren't quite what I am looking for in breeding stock.

    Anyone know of a lady up around NE Ark., I think the Bateville area (not sure) that sell marans. Supposed to have several varieties and very high quality too. Has lots of other poultry too.
