    Wyandotte are rose combed, not pea combed -- it is pea combs where the "rows" are indicative of gender. How old is your wyandotte? If you take and post a photo of the bird we can help you.

    I'm new to raising chickens (am loving it) can you explain the difference between the combs? ( Pea/Rose)
