    I did a search for "explain combs" but wasn't able to find a focused answer. I'd like to know what a pea comb is; what other types of combs there are, colors, shapes, etc.
    Thanks!

    In the "learning center" there are diagrams of bird parts - hens and roosters, that should help. Just look at the very top of this screen for the link to it.

    Well, after looking there, it seems it doesn't answer your question. I would google pea comb, it's better just to see a picture than to get a discription. And if you find somthing, say, on Wikipedia it would probably have links to other types of combs and related topics.
