    I hear lots of talk about roosters and their red comb and such but the ladies get combs on their head.. I would like to learn more about different types.. one example would be a pea comb what is it and how big does it get..

    I saw one of my friends barred rock hens and they had big red combs on their head..

    so what age will my pullets get combs and what are the types of combs..

    THanks

    my EE comb again how big and red? (sometimes it is red but not in this pic.

    they all seem to get red faces sometimes but not all times? is it the heat?
