    what is the proper size for a polish rooster's comb
    for wcb? i read in fancy fowl that the smaller the better. i thought the purpose of combs and wattles were for attraction of females, fertility and distinction between the sexes? anyone have any pics of a wcb that meets the correct standard for this?just wondering...........[​IMG]

    I'm not really sure, but I know they don't get very big. I'm pretty sure that they would prefer to see them symmetrical, the proper shape (a V) and the proper red color before they would count off on size. If you get a chance to look at the book "Extra Extraordinary Chickens", you'll find several photos of WCB roos and other colors that were taken at various shows, so they should give you an idea of what to look for.
