    I am trying to rehome a roo who is three months old and writing a description. He is a Polish/Production Red cross. What do I call his comb? He looks like a half a buttercup.

    If it were me I'd say his comb looks a bit like a crown. I have buttercups but they aren't full grown yet. Only teenagers.

    Definitely not a rose comb. They are closer to the head. I'd say a buttercup also.

    It is a buttercup comb but only has one copy of D^v instead of two as in the Buttercup breed.

    It's not a buttercup comb either. I'd say it's a combination V comb from the polish and single comb from the Production Red. With crosses, you sometimes get funky combs.
