Curtis Geary for giving me my start on this wonderful breed. It was easy to fall in love with rosecombs. Their graceful curves and striking features cannot go unnoticed either in the show or on the front yard. I frequently have visitors who pull in the drive just to ask about these beautiful bantams. I look forward to many years sharing my time with them.
I've started hatching this years birds and have high hopes for them. I was lucky to get a few super nice girls last year. Im hoping their delicate heads and typey look will only get better. Tails need some length in the males and lobes need some size. Im keeping an eye out for a good male this year with an even distribution of nooks and crannys on his comb as well as a more circular lobe to put over the girls.
I've located a gal who breeds wheaten rosecombs and was able to hatch a few eggs from that shipment this Winter. Robin was so pleasant to speak with and was kind enough to send me a box of pullets as I hatched out so many roos. I have a young blue wheaten girl and a splash wheaten girl to take photos of soon. Hopefully, in a few years, I will have a decent flock of wheatens.
