    Hi all,

    This is one of my three-week-old chicks. Her comb seems really different from the rest of my chicks. Can you tell me why? And/or is it just how she is...I mean, "fine". Oh! BTW, she is a Golden Wyandotte if that helps any.

    Thanks!!

    Also, she eats/drinks/plays fine.

    What breeds are the other chicks?

    Her comb does seem wide but I am not a Wyandotte expert. If she is acting fine I wouldn't worry.

    Oh and Wyandotte don't have straight combs. They have rose combs.

  7. Different types of combs. The chicken in the second picture has a single comb.

    That looks like a straight comb, not a rose comb. How sure are you that those are pure Wyandottes?
