    If you can see a single comb, it's an Adalusian. If you can see a rose comb, it's a Hamburg.

    In a young chick, a rosecomb will look "flat". You should be able to tell what a single comb looks like on a chick.

    a single comb is the normal kind with little spikes.. a rose comb on a young bitds will look flat with no spikes on them
