Is my girls comb normal for her breed?
I'm unsure of her breed also!
I don't think it should be black like that at the front. It's probably bruised from fighting
She kind of looks like she a cross between a black skinned bird and a white skinned bird... such as say an Ayam Cemani cross Easter Egger. It could be what @Flock Master64 was saying but to me it looks more like a cross breed chicken that has interfering colours... just my guess/opinion
Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. Here's a link to a search on comb discolouration that may help you - https://www.backyardchickens.com/newsearch?search=comb+discoloration. If you are still unsure, then I'd post on the ER forum -
Probably the question that will give you the answer is has she always had this colouration in her comb or has it just happened recently?
I think the comb coloration is part of her genetic heritage - whatever cross produced her.
Greetings from Kansas, mrsdiamond, and ! Great to have you aboard. I tend to agree with the genetics answer some have provided. If it's always looked that way, that is. I have a couple with combs like that. Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC!
Thank You for the welcome!
