    I am going to start showing my chickens, and I have 3 buff orpingtons- 2 of which have longer, bigger combs and 1 of which has a smaller neat comb
    which is more ideal for showing? i'll see if I can get some picks up, but is a smaller or larger comb better?

    I think they'd be both perfect! :)

    For combs #1. The other looks more like a Leghorn's. Of course they could have Leghorns in their heritage if the are production type or she could be in full production and the comb gets bigger.

    Good luck,
