Huge floppy combs much smaller in stature then the cochins or reds but not bantam size

    The coloring looks like my Welsummer pullets, but not the comb. The comb looks like my Welsummer cockerels, but not the coloring. How old??

    Can't help you ID the chicken in the pics, but can verify that Domiques have a pea comb and barred rocks have the single comb.

    I think about 2 - 2.5 years I know they are on the older side but pretty good price and well my rooster needed more company and the chicks are too young to go in with him

    Doms have a rose comb like a Wyandotte, not a pea comb. And that looks like a Welsummer or a brown Leghorn.

    Do any of the mentioned breeds have white ear lobes well not really all white I tried to see if it was something caked on there but the birds did not want to cooperate, but I do not think it is gunk. I guess I will have to wait until the start laying speaking of which another ? when you move birds they can sometimes quit laying for a while do they have a tendancy to get backuped?

    Brown Leghorns would have white earlobes. Welsummers would have red. They may quit temporarily, but shouldnt get 'backed up'.
