My BSL pullet chicks (EE x Dom or PBR) often have black combs, while the males have red combs. By the time they have reached POL, the black is much reduced: the extra comb growth comes in red, so the comb has diffuse black mottling. By the time the following spring rolls around, the entire comb is red.

It'll turn red.

It will be red, with some black in it.
thanks so much!!!
