    What differances are there between a bantam black hamburg and a bantam black rosecomb? I have a trio or black hamburgs but they just look so much like rosecombs how would you tell the 2 differant breeds apart as I have never seen rosecombs in person so can't compare firsthand.

    Thanks

    different weight, slightly different shape, rosecomb are in general a more compact bird while hamburgh looks racier..... much like comparing orpington and australorp...
