    Sorry to ask, snugbug54, but is your ptofile picture of a Sicilian Buttercup (I hope I spelled that right) 'cause that's the breed of my chicken, Midas,?

    No, it's totally fine :)
    My avatar is of Clover, a teeny-tiny banty. I'm actually not sure what breed Clover is.


    Let's compare the combs:

    A Sicilian Buttercup comb. Notice the two layered single comb, a unique comb called a buttercup comb. Clover has a single comb.

    Sicilian Buttercup comb:

    Clovers comb:

    The feather pattern is sort of the same.

    Sicilian Buttercup feather pattern:

    Clover's feather pattern:
    [​IMG]


    Clover's and a Sicilian Buttercup's tail feathers look the same...


    Hey, maybe I cracked the case! I have a thread up for guessing the breed of Clover:
    Breed guess?
