    Your Silver Laced Wyandotte is perfectly fine comb and feather wise. Her comb is like that because the breed calls for a pea comb, which is what this is. There never was more comb, she didn't loose any of it. That's what it's supposed to look like. The feathers missing at the tail base are from the male breeding her. She's somebody's favorite girl. Those feathers will regrow. The comb will never be anything other than what it is, which is a good thing!
