    I'll cop to it, I'm a duck person-- chickens are sort of out of my element.
    Maybe someone more experienced can help me? Are my two wyandotte hens wearing the breed correct rose comb? or a single comb?

    The Wyandotte looking at the camera has a rose comb, which is correct. I can't really see the other one's comb though because it's turned away. Most Wyandotte's have rose combs, pet quality or SQ. I've heard of a few with single combs, but I don't think it happens often.

    Thanks for the reply! they both have the same comb, one was just larger than the other while they were growing up but they're both the same now-- thanks!
