    This thread has pictures and a description. It cleared up my questions on duckwings.

    I haven't had good fortune finding a picture of a pea comb. Basically it's like a little wrinkly cushion instead of standing up straight with points like a straight comb.

    I had a question too. I just saw a listing in the local paper for a duck laced polish. Is there such thing? I have seen some major goofs in their and am always chuckling and correcting mistakes.

    tHANKS FOR (oops sorry! for the caps) the responses and the pictures of the absolutely beautiful birds!

    egh - the 2nd picture looks just like the picture on the "comb" page at this site for a strawberry comb.

    http://www.urbanext.uiuc.edu/eggs/res11-combs.html

    It is an educational website at a lower level ... LOL Just right for me! [​IMG]

    Blessings to all! Laura
