  1. Either the guy knows what hes doing, or he has no clue that they dont have the right comb type. [​IMG]

    Ahahaha. I asked him a question saying:

    "Umm... Are you sure you've got some rosecombs? Because your rosecombs don't have rosecombs..."

    I believe lowered fertility is sometimes linked to Rosecombed birds and single combs DO pop up, such as in Wyandottes and the Single combed birds are sometimes kept in the breeding lines to improve fertility.....please correct me if this is wrong.

    I have never heard of that [​IMG] Wierd. Those looked like some poor quality birds anyway...rose comb or not.... and the splash looked really dirty.
