    I have a question that I'm sure people here can help me with. How many different kinds of combs are there - pea combs, rose combs, etc? and what do they all look like? I have NHR hens, EE hens, and a pair of Silver Spangled Hamburgs - the combs are different, and I don't know the names. Any chance of a photo dictionary? Thanks

    Click on the link in my sig to check out my comb page. There's a really interesting picture there that will give you an idea of the huge array of different types of combs that chickens can have.
