    I was wondering if somebody here could do me the favor of posting some good head shots of chickens that would illustrate the different kinds of combs chickens can have.

    Right now, the only kind of comb I'm familiar with is a walnut comb (from my silkies) and a single comb (from my old orpington).

    Can somebody give me some pics other different combs? I'm particularly interested in what a pea comb and a rose comb looks like.

    There is a breed of chickens called Rosecombs, plus Sebrights have them, I think. Cornish breeds have pea combs. Silkies have walnut combs.

    That was him as a youngster. The pea comb is much larger now that he's matured-reminds me of an organ grinder's hat sometimes, LOL.

    Yes, Johnny, that's a rosecomb.
