    Can anyone explain to me (pictures would be a bonus) the difference between a rose comb and a walnut comb? The comb is right where the beak meets the head, right? Also, do hens have combs or only roosters? Thanks!

    Here are a few more pics just to add, but I think Realsis pretty much covered it. You just have to click on the links and it should show you the pictures.
