    I have two 20 week old cockerels. They are healthy and happy, nice coloration in the combs, eating a drinking normal etc... But as they have gotten older and their combs have gotten bigger, the combs are now leaning to one side like they are flipping over. Is this normal?

    Apollo a gold laced Wyandotte. Looks like it's leaning weird.

    And Gizmo, an EE. His is super floppy. I think it's supposed to be a rose comb, but can't really tell since it's kinda laying on his head o_O

    Yep, sometimes those combs just flop over if they get really large. Nothing to worry about.
