I saw that there was nothing for rosecombs yet so figured I'd start one :) my iPod broke and I had to reset it so this is the only picture I have currently of my rooster ( like my FB page shamrock silkie ;) )

I'm in WI and the only ones I ever see are mine and a breeders in MN but I haven't heard of any down south. I feel like most rose comb breeders are pretty private lol they're hard to find

I had Barney, my little Kid Rock of the Rosecomb variety, the American badarse. He was a barred Rosecomb, and a mean little bugger!! He would pose on his stump, unless I had the waterhose with the trigger handle. He was just too good for it!! The bottom picture was his sweet face, his "hey baby, gimmie a bite of whatever you've got" look. It worked.

I do not see a huge amount of rosecomb chickens due to them not taking heat as well. Bigger comb chickens do better in hot weather from my experience.
