    I dont know if this will help or not but here I go....
    Single X Rose = Depending on if the Rose is R/R or R/r+ you could get Rose and Single Comb or just Rose Comb.
    Single X Pea = Depending on if the Pea is P/P or P/p+ you could get Pea and Single Comb or Just Pea..
    Rose X Pea = Depending on if the Rose is R/R or R/r+ and the Pea P/P or P/p+ you could get Pea, Rose, Walnut, and Single Comb..

    You all so try this "Comb" calculator

    Assuming that all the birds are pure for their comb genes,

    single X rose will give rose combed offspring
    single X pea will give pea combed offspring
    rose X pea will give walnut combed offspring
