    I have yet to learn the different combs. Does anyone have pictures to explain? I figured I would look to the experts....after a few Google searches and some conflicting info I think I have some of it down...but I am still vague in a few areas. Is there a thread around here I am missing that explains this?

    Are you trying to identify a particular chicken?

    they still may be rosecombs, as they will produce single comb offspring.

    They are so young. I am sure if you give them more time they will probably come out rosecombed. I was having difficulty with my silkies combs too, but I think I am getting it now. I thought it was a single, but now I think its a walnut.
