    I was flipping through my McMurray catalog and saw the "spiked rosecomb", which I had never heard of. So I strolled through it trying to find a breed that had this "spiked rosecomb", and couldn't find any? So then a found Sebrights... well don't they have them? From what I can tell they do. Help please? If they don't, which does?

    Rosecomb Bantams, the acutal breed, usually have longer spiked combes, the Rose Comb brown leghorns in MMs catalog have them in the picture, I'm not sure about the acutal birds though. I belive Hambergs usually have longer spikes too.

    You must also remember that Murray McMurray likes to make up names, too. . . Like Americana/Araucanas. [​IMG]

    Naturally a rose comb has a "spike" at the back, especially in bantam breeds, but any "spikes" on top of the comb should not be wanted at all, in any rosecombed breed.
