So are most people seeing the carnation combs in the Wade Jeane line of birds? Just asking because my second batch of chicks which are said to be from Jeane line birds (and I believe to be true), and are from a different breeder than my first sad batch of chicks, has a cockerel with a developing carnation comb. I only see one cockerel with the problem out of 5 but it is there. I have decided to go with this hatch as I am getting too much money into my birds now to just cull everyone. I will be doing some future culling for sure but I have more eggs in the incubator from this breeder and all chicks are coming from very nice colored eggs! I guess I will have some work a head of me. I think one of the problems is there are breeder that just do not know. This person has been raising marans for over 4 years and said they had not seen any carnation combs in their birds. He started with eggs from a family member and has not introduced any other line into his birds. I think he is a very honest man and from the pictures I have seen of his birds they are beautiful. Maybe I am just getting those few lucky eggs. They give me something to work with though and his eggs are beautiful.
