    I got a month old Blue Orpington from my poultry breeder a couple of weeks ago and I am noticing her comb is growing sideway. Is there anything I could do to make it stand? The blue is beautiful and I think she will grow into a beautiful bird but her comb is flopping, which I know is not correct for Orpintons. I have heard of tapping it with scotch tape but I don't know if that is safe. Thanks for your replys!

    MY experience with australorps is that they straitened out as they grow.
