    It has almost a dent in the top of it's comb and starts as an upside down v. [​IMG]
    This is the full view of the chick. It is almost 4 weeks old.

    Oh and I forgot to put that it has a green shine on its feathers if that helps.

    It looks like a rose comb.

    Oh, I hadn't considered that. I'm not sure of breed so that didn't come to mind. Thanks

    Agree it could be a rose comb, or a mix of different styles.

    Where did you get it? If it indeed does have a v-comb it could be a La Flèche.

    Bought it off someone on Craigslist. They told me it and the other two were Ameraucanas but they all 3 have feathers on their legs.
