    An Oriental Game of some sort. She's either molting, very young, or been pecked a lot. She could be an Asil, or Thai, or even some sort of cross - The comb doesn't quite look pure pea comb.

    If I had to guess, she was dubbed, it looks as if her wattles were cleaned too. Pretty Gal [​IMG]

    No, pretty sure she hasn't been dubbed. I think it's just an odd pea comb or incomplete pea comb. I've got a Shamo hen with a comb that, at the tip, sinks inward.

    Quote:Yeah I have a hen with a comb thats similar she looks more like she has antannae and it's natural, no idea what breed as I have never found out what mine is, If she is laying are her eggs blue ? (properly all the way through the shell blue, not just a blue coating that can be scratched off) as thats what my hen lays. She is certainly a beauty whatever she is!

    Asil or cross would be my guess also. You might want to breed her with your very good looking Pumpkin in your photo and see what result you get.
