    Oh yeah...what the heck is a "doodle thing?" A comb is on top of their head. The wattles are what hang from under their beak.

    There is a section called "what breed or gender is this?" I would post some pictures there.

    Please help me. What is a "doodle thing?" I've had chickens for 69 years and am unaware of this term.
