    One of my 20 week old Buff Orpingtons has no cone at all on her head. She actually has nothing red on her head. One small pink strip of skin on top is all she s got. She looks like shes clean shavin.LOL. Is this just genetics or is something wrong with her?

    Sometimes it takes time for a comb to fully develop. That said, if there isn't even a start of a comb, it could be genetic or removed by some other means. If you have a picture of her comb, post a pic, as it might be a different type of comb.
