    You're out of luck. There's only one breed with that comb, the Buttercup.

    I live in Australia. My neighbor has chickens with buttercup combs. He doesn't know what breed they are. They are between a regular chicken & bantam size of regular chicken . They are buff with darker hackles & some black spots on the hackles. Their earlobes are 3/4 white with a tiny bit of pink on 1 outside edge. They lay round tinted/white eggs between regular egg & regular bantam. I'm unsure/ can't find a way to post a pic. I'd love to know what they are. They are flighty, shy & very gentle
