    What are the different types of combs? Is there a list anywhere that shows what type combs each breed should have? Ive checked a lot of the pictures here, it seems the orps should have the "single" combs. Is this correct?

    cgmccary, you forgot the buttercup comb, but other than that, I think you got them all.
