    I'm looking for some good head with comb shots for the BYC comb information page I'm working on. I'd rather use BYC members' pics (I will give credit to you if you let me use them) than pics from someone's website (obviously, I would e-mail the person for permission first).

    I just hosted the comb contest, so I thought I'd get enough pics from there, but I'm missing a few examples. I need decent quality close-up head shots of the face and comb. I'd like examples of both hens and roosters with each comb type.

    Just post your pics in this thread and I'll PM you if I decide to use yours. Thanks in advance!

    ***This is what I'm looking for...***

    Penedesenca (breed) -- has a distinctive comb called "clavel" unique to this breed... If you raise these, I'd love a picture!

    Buttercup comb -- distinctive to Buttercup breed

    Chantecler's cushion comb -- Chanteclers have cushion combs...

    V-shaped comb -- any breed with a V-shaped comb

    Strawberry comb -- unique to Malays and Yokohamas

    If you're interested in where the pictures would be going, please click on the link to the "comb page" in my signature.

    Thanks in advance for anyone who can contribute!!
