All About Combs

by | Feb 19, 2021 | Poultry

Today we’re talking about combs. Chicken combs come in a variety of colors, sizes, and shapes but what exactly are they? As defined by the Chicken Encyclopedia by Gail Damerow – A comb is a fleshy crownlike protrusion on top of a chicken’s head, usually more prominent in males than females. Most breeds have bright red combs, however, Sumatras have purplish combs and Silkie combs are so dark they’re nearly black. Learn more about the 10 common comb styles and their purpose!
