    Can anyone post a pictures of the different combs? I have rose comb GLW's, the single comb sexlink, but what is a P comb and whatever other combs they have?

    There
    is a Pea comb gene and a Rose comb gene.

    If they only have a Pea comb gene, they have a pea comb.

    If they only have a Rose comb gene, they have a rose comb.

    If they have both a Pea comb gene and a Rose comb gene, they have a Walnut comb.

    If they do not have either a Pea or Rose comb gene, they have a Single comb.

    Then you have all that other stuff I don't have a clue about.

    Wow, thanks. From the looks of the picture the Pea comb is what my GLW's have. They are a double row thing low on the head and closing on the back of the head. I was told that was a Rose comb but that's not what it looks like.

    Thanks RM, you have been so much help for me.
