    His comb is tall, flops over slightly and is pretty smooth on top (no spikes). Also, if you know, what breed is he? He was a late bloomer so I thought he was hen until he was about 5 months old.
    I found Chickie when he was only a couple of days old as he was running down the sidewalk. He is about 7 months in this current pic.

    Looks like a pea comb gone wrong, actually. My birds who are part single comb parent and part pea comb parent sometimes get ones like that.

    That is aclassic example of the "Gob of chewing gum" comb.

    He's interesting!!! Adds character I think. [​IMG] I have a hen that has a weird comb that flops over like that.

    [​IMG] I've heard it as "bubblegum comb," but I think I like that version better.
