    Boy. Even a girl with a heterozygous pea comb at laying age wouldn't have a comb that raised.

    Quote:Half pea comb, half something else (in this case a single comb) - Meaning a bird with purebred pea comb type was bred with a bird with a purebred single comb type. Or two birds who are half pea comb were bred together.
