    We adopted 8 chicks from a neighbor last summer and aren't sure what some of the breeds are. What breed is this in the picture? The comb is scrunched or flattened. Is it normal for this breed? We have two hens of this breed and the combs on both look the same.

    Looks like a gold-laced Wyandotte to me, and yes, the comb is normal.

    I believe that is called a Rose Comb.
     
  5. I'm thinking walnut. I have several rosecombs and their combs come to a point.
