    We have a rooster. Not sure what breed he is, except he is half fighter. Whatever that means! He's small & skinny but full of himself. Faster than heck & a loner, for the most part.

    He has a (what we call)lazy comb. It is always hanging over one eye. It never stands up straight like our Production Red rooster.

    Is he deficent in something of minerals or vitamins?

    Is this something that we should worry about or is it normal for some breeds?

    They usually stand up but if it's falling over and acting just fine, I say it is genetics. I had a roo once who had a pea comb that "fell over"!! It was twisted on the back and flopped over his eye a bit!

    Not to worry!
