I have a 3 week old Polish crested/ Brown Leghorn cross chick. I'm pretty sure its a cockerel, but interest is in is comb. It starts off as a single and then transitions into a very pink, DOUBLE comb. One right next to the other. I have not seen or heard of a comb like this. The other chick I hatched has a black comb that looks like it might be starting to double, bit not nearly as pronounced.

Any comments?

I guess that's a mix of the duplex(polish) and single comb(leghorn)?

That sounds really cool!

Quote:That is typical when crossing a single comb breed with a duplex comb breed. You can get all kinds of combs from the cross. The duplex comb is incompletely dominant over the single comb so you get a wierd looking comb. I have produced numerous heterozygotes and none of the combs look alike. They have different shapes.
