    I was just in marking my 3 week old BO and saw that one of them has a flat comb. Out of 20 of them "it" is the only one. Can this happen? If so, does it mean it is a roo or hen? I can get pictures if i need to. The little buggers are hard to catch right now...teenager faze of "leave me alone". [​IMG]

    I'm sorry I can't answer your question, but I have to comment on the "teenage stage"! [​IMG]

    This is my first flock, they are @ 3wks as well & they are sooo skittish all of the sudden. Plus, they're a lot faster than I anticipated. I make one quick move and they all are peeping, scattering around like I'm about to eat them or something [​IMG]

    Hope you get an answer soon in regards to your question.

    It should not have a rose comb, but if they came from a hatchery, they very well may have one. I had some Silver Laced Wyandottes that had single combs, pea combs and one with a wacky very odd split comb. Same batch from the hatchery. Coloring was right,just wrong comb

    The hatchery probably goofed. It's most likely a Buff Wyandotte.

    Looks like a wyandotte comb, and a male. My female wyandottes haven't had that much comb for weeks and weeks.
