    Over the last week my EE Roo, Mr. Bo Jangles developed a floopy/droopy comb. I just want to know if it normal or not. Hopefully, here's photo of him that I took this morning if I uploaded it the right way. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I thought I'd bump this back to the front. Could some one look at my picts. and tell me if I have a healthy Roo.

    that looks like a rose comb, or one of those combs that aren't standard. Don't know if it's actually a rose, but it's one of those...I think.

    Does he seem okay otherwise? Eating, drinking, crowing, breeding?
     
  5. It is a pea comb and it looks normal, just crooked.

    It wasn't crooked a week ago. Otherwise he seems fine, eating drinking, championship crower. He's only 4 1/2 months - so he's just getting interested in the whole mating thing. You should see Mr. Bo Jangles dance for his girls.[​IMG]

    I wouldn't worry, then, JayB. I think his comb's probably just growing bigger and flopped over due to the size of it. I've got a couple EE hens that have combs that look similar.

    Thanks everyone! That's one less thing to think about, which is always nice.
