    Ours seems fine except for one scratch/black mark. There was some white but that's disappearing. We want to show him this summer.

    We obviously want him healthy as can be. I've seen some "questionable" combs at the shows...so...what is "normal" colouring/marking/on a healthy bird?
    thanks for your pics!

    Here is a healthy red comb on my Blue Orpington rooster and on my BR rooster. Dont have many closeups of their combs, though.

    I sold him to another breeder but made the guy PROMISE me he'd tell me when the bird died so that I could get him stuffed.

    Barred Plymouth Rock Cockerel (6 months...I think it could grow some more):

    This was taken back in September, but here is a good close-up of my SLW roo's comb, when he was about 5 months old.

    Thank you!!! He had the best head I'd ever seen. I wish I could have kept up with him, but the winters in the bathroom were taking their toll...LOL! The freezing temps would have ruined his comb!
