    I've seen leghorns, Rhode Island Reds and some Barred Rocks with HUGE combs and wattles.

    I also have a Partridge Cochin roo with LARGE comb and wattles.

    Wow yeah that is large. Is there a colorful breed with them as well?

    Another question, how are the temperaments of leghorns?

    I only have White Leghorn hens... they are not as friendly as most of my other breeds but we can still pick them up and pet/hold them. They just don't come to us for attention... we have to go to them.
