    Ok another not so new question. I know I have seen a link on here that shows all comb sizes and what they represent as far as linkage and traits-can anyone guide me in the right direction please? I have a book but it does not include photos, which is what Im really looking for-Im a picture person:)

    well
    looky here I found and answer to my question! Thats exactly I was looking for-of Course like I said I am a picture person and would like real life pictures. All though this tidbit told me what breed of chicken is associated with comb types, it did answer my question about a roo I have and dont know who the parents are:) Hope this helps someone else?
