    Does anyone know how to tell the difference? The breeder is no help - he told me they were New Hampshires!! They have green legs and the comb - well, it's either a buttercup or a rose comb, I can't tell? I'll try to get a closer picture of the comb. I love their eyeliner, though! So cute.

    the buttercup comb will look like 2 single combs side by side, the rose comb will be flat

    You have buttercups, and so does the fellow of the adult hens pictured above. Hamburg's have rose combs.

    Sweet. Thank you Rhode Runner! For the record, I'd be happy either way. They are such pretty birds! [​IMG]
