    Dottie looks "fluffy" like orpingtons are supposed to look, but I agree that comb is off.
    Reba is a Rhode Island red
    The others are sex link pullets, one brand name is gold comet.

    cool...thanks....her comb has always looked a little off.....when she was tiny it almost looked as if it had been removed or cut off...It was just a flat red surface where the other girls had a completely different type surface to it. Kinda rough and a bit bumpy. As they grew the others comb began to stand and Dottie's just tends to look like a wad of chewing gum.I have no clue....she is a very sweet girl very laid back. The only time you can see her get all worked up is when I catch grasshoppers or June bugs and release them inside the coop.Then she is all Business...lol
