    #1 This little hen(??) has a weird comb. Can you help with her breed.

    Can't help with breeds, but I'm suspicious of the first two being cockerels as well as #3

    Does the first one have a buttercup comb - only Sicilian Buttercup chickens have those. That's as much as I can help.

    It is not a buttercup comb... Looks more like a rose or maybe pea comb. That isn't a buttercup either. :)
