    This Cochin has a way different comb than her sisters! I have no idea why or what you would call it. Any suggestions ?

    I would say small pea comb, or possibly just a very underdeveloped single.

    Her sisters have single combs! Here is another one that does have a very flat comb no bumps or anything. Their dad was Easter egger not sure about the mom. We got these as our first set of chicks and didn't know what we were doing lol. Here is the other questionable, I forgot about her!

    If their father was an Easter Egger, then it is not surprising that a few of them have pea combs or modified single combs.

    If her father was an Easter egger, she's not a Cochin, she's a mixed breed. When you mix pea and straight combs you get all sorts of wonky funky looking combs.

    Oh okay. They of course were advertised as Cochin so that's why i call them that. Thanks for everyone's input.
