I have a Barred Rock hen that has a comb that is flopped over. Would she be able to show?
I would imagine cause I have seen show chickens with flopped over combs hope this helps
American Standard of Perfection says:
Comb ( Female) Single, medium in size, set firmly on head, straight upright,evenly serrated having five well defined points, those in front and rear smaller than those in middle.
I think for small shows and 4-H it matters more how the bird is taken care of. If you are proud of your bird, you should show it and should not worry if she wins or not. Have fun at the show.
What type of show? As far as the APA goes a lopped comb is a disqualification. For 4-H, small (non-APA) shows and fairs it's probably not that important.
There are a few breeds that are allowed a lopped comb but a Plymouth Rock is not one of them.
Just small fun shows.
