    The comb on this rooster seams a bit odd to me. Is this normal. He isnt the same as the rest. He is young. SO i am assuming this will get bigger.What do you think.?

    yep - hard to see. Do you have it on photo hosting site you can leave the link to? Maybe then someone can help? Also, the breed? Is he a silkie?

    yes he is a silikie. I will try to explain it. His walnut comb lookings like it it a double one .It kinda goes out of both sides.In stead in the middle.[​IMG]. It just looks wierd.I will try to get a bigger pic or a closer one. But being on dial up.It is hard to do.

    I hope this one is better. You can click on the picture and it will come up bigger. It is larger when i upload it.But the site resize it. SO this is the best i can do. Let me know what you think

    Does the comb continue down the sides or are those waddles? LOL I know little about silkies but it looks like a funky silkie comb. [​IMG]
