    Hi....what does it mean if my Leghorn hen's comb is flopped over? She seems fine other than that.

    ADDENDUM:

    I looked around the forum and found my answer.....it sounds normal.

    Nothing to worry about...they (Leghorns) are notorious for growing BIG single combs. I think they look like Marilyn Monroe of chickens. LOL!!!

    If they could talk I think they'd say it's a "Pearl Blond". [​IMG]

    Here's a link to a picture of a Leghorn with a big comb...it's almost bending to the side on the back. I think they get so big (combs) and gravity takes over...just like it does on us! [​IMG]

    My leghorn has such a flopped over comb you'd think she was trying to do a comb over.

    when you go to post reply, there's a black "smilies" and a blue hyperlink that says "show" click on that, and a whole list shows up.[​IMG]
