    There is a mini-golf course close to Kentucky Lake that is decorated in a jungle theme. Besides the course they have a mile long path that is tree lined where you can see, feed, and pet many goats, donkeys, emus, ostritiches, chickens, peafowl, camels, a zebra and donkey cross which is beautiful, mini horses, ducks, geese, lambs, lamas, and sheep. This is one I caught a picture of on my last visit there. He is beautiful and I would love to have one like him, but I don't know what he is!

    My second question is, what is up with my EE roos comb? I have never had any other breeds with pea combs, but in the pics I've see the comb isn't this tall.

    I am thinking he is some type of game, but what color and exact breed?

    The first is a red pyle game. Some pea combs are more vertical than others... [​IMG]

    I am not sure of the specifics, but he looks to be either a red shouldered something, or a poorly colored red pyle. As for exact breed I have no idea. He is definitely some kind of game breed.

    And the EE's comb is what sometimes happens when you cross a pea combed bird with a straight combed bird.

    Single comb is recessive.
