    MOST Rhode Island Reds have single combs, but there's some very rare ones with rosecombs too.



    There's more than what's on the list though. There's some really awesome ones out there, and especially the fact that within one type of combs you can get some neat variations. I've seen a gamecock with a normal single comb, but it only had 4 points that stuck out high over his head, like an awesome antler or something.
