    i have 2 slw and they are 3 weeks old and they have 2 different looking combs developing. Is this normal ? One looks like a single comb and the othe looks like a rose comb.[​IMG]

    Wyandottes are supposed to have rose combs but recessive single combs can pop up sometimes, particularly in hatchery stock where they don't put as much effort into breeding to standard.

    single combs are common with hatchery wyandottes, it even happens in show stock from time to time.
