That is correct.

In certain breeds, like Leghorns and White-Faced Black Spanish, the hen's comb is more likely than the roosters to "flop." I personally think it looks cool, but I like chicken combs.

We have two BO hens, and their combs have not folded over. I don't think they do, no. Ours are 4 months old. Their combs/wattles stay pretty small usually.

Totally! I love it when a chicken moves its head quickly and its comb and wattles keep swinging from side to side even after the head has stopped moving.
