    Sandhill Preservation would have them. Forget about MM because I used to have a pair of pullets and their combs were just rose comb size, not big at all. Disappointing!

    Interesting! I have never noticed those before. What is special about them? I know by looking at this animated picture that it is not doing them any justice. I'll look them up on the web. Thanks for the info.

    Quote:Thanks EweSheep. Not sure if I like that breed. It looked like a large abnormal growth and I could not see the eyes or beak. Very different though.
