    I don't have that breed right now, but one of my favorite childhood memories is of my Black Rosecomb Rooster named Shorty. I found him in a feed store chick bin and I just couldn't resist that tiny, black chick. We had the most fun watching him grow up with our other, much larger chickens. At that time, no one in my family had ever seen such a small chicken. When he started to crow, we laughed our heads off at his tiny voice. He pronounced every syllable of his crow very distinctly, like a proper gentleman. I took Shorty to the County Fair and he won Best of Show in the Junior Division. I still have the trophy after all these years.

    So, I would love to have some more of these wonderful little chickens and let my two boys experience owning some of these.
    ETA: I would love to provide pictures for you of their development and as many updates as you would like! I'm not bragging, but I can take a decent picture, suitable for a website.

    I don't have any but if you would like information on the breed http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosecomb has some nice info that you might use.

    Black and White Rosecomb Bantams are noted for perfection of comb and lobe, quality of feather, lustrous plumage color and distinctly proud and stylish type. (taken from http://urbanext.illinois.edu/eggs/res10-breedhistory.html )

    Oh and this site is very informative http://www.omlet.us/breeds/breeds.php?breed_type=Chickens&breed=Rosecomb+Bantam I think I like that one best!!
