    last winter at the start of winter i had two roos starting to mature. The first real freeze my one roo got frostbite. His comb never got bigger after that. His brothers comb became 2 times bigger

    They had their big growth spurt near POL when we had a week of 110 degree + weather.

    Yeah - LOL Thing 1's comb started growing and kept growing like crazy. They are layers, so I don't have to worry about passing it on.

    Thing 2's comb is big also, but not that big.

    whoa!

    I guess I second what Tru says.... what a pretty chicken. Nice photos too. Is there such a thing as comb-reduction-surgery. Do you think her personality would change? That hen has the type of Crest that I like on females.

    Steen...So frostbite killed the growth of the comb...but the roosters were the same age & side-by-side? guess that would be a 50%-minus proof of the theory... but I think that they meant when the cockerels were really little - hence too small to get frostbite.

    Happy 2014 everyone!!

    LOL! Actually, they are pictures of two different birds. My first post, (#3273) is of "Thing 1". Her comb is the biggest, crest is much smaller, but she's a sweetie. "Thing 2" is the bird to the left of her in the picture, and her portraits are in post #3275. She's the Diva Boss, and picks on everyone else. She chases my olive-eggers around, and they are almost twice her size.

    I couldn't tell them apart when I got them, so I called them Thing One and Thing Two for so long that it stuck. (My other one is crestless, and much more golden so is easy to identify.)

    Luckily I live in a warm climate - Frostbite would probably dub them for me if I lived in the cold country!

    Happy New Year to everyone from me and my funny-looking Legbars who keep me, and my friends, stocked with lovely blue eggs!
