The 9 types of comb recognized by the American Poultry Association

The sharp-eyed among you will note that the picture is eight types of comb. I had to look this up. The ninth is the silkie comb, not pictured because silkies have a head full of poofy feathers and you can’t actually see their combs.

I screwed up. This little daily useless-posting exercise was supposed to be a look back at 2017, but I guess I clicked the wrong link because this thing is from 2016. But, dammit, I did some research.

Also, 99.99% of chickens have the single comb, so really this is a picture of a normal chicken and seven legally recognized freaks.
