    Its a necessity to know what comb is correct for each breed. Especially when selecting for breeding or showing purposes. You could have a "perfect" bird in every aspect. Then you notice that the comb is incorrect or misshapen.

    I can guess just about any bantam chick’s breed right. Got that way by being chicken obsessed. I don’t have chickens but if I had a million dollars I’d probably buy a million chickens and sometimes the hatcheries sell them a dollar each too

    You would need a huge coop for a million chickens - imagine your feeding bill and all the poo scooping you'd have to do. Worse yet, what if most of the chickens turned out to be roosters. :hit

    Lol that's true, maybe I'd be like Mr. Deeds and buy a million chickens but give one to the millions of people (eventually) on here

    If you haven't seen the movie, Mr. Deeds gave things away after he got his inheritance
