    Nope, that's not a pea comb. That's a single comb.

    Here's a chart showing what the different combs look like:

    I am needing to seperate my girls into two coops, and I was going to seperate based on those likely to lay brown eggs and green eggs, but don't want to wait until they are actually laying and mess up the dynamics of the established flock.

    Many have smooth combs/or lack there of. Several have very tiney saw tooth. And a couple even have black in the comb area. Several just look like warts! [​IMG] I would appreciate any help.

    Everytime I ask the question I keep getting that same drawing and I'm sorry, but honestly I can't tell comparing the drawing to the chicken. [​IMG]
