    I ended up with one rooster from this year's bunch. I think he is an EE of some sort, but I've never seen this type of comb before. Does it have a name or is he just a strange mix?

    Thanks!

    ve is right. I have gotten some of those over the years when breeding an EE with a straight combed hen.

    Thanks for the reply.
    As far as EE go, is this a trait that is undesirable to keep and breed? I'm not an expert in comb genetics. :)

    If it's an EE, wouldn't anything go? I know they're considerred mutts, but I love 'em!

    How cute! It looks a lot like a Silkie-type comb to me! Could he be part?
    Walnut comb? Strawberry comb? Not sure!
