Another main purpose the Rosecomb is utilised for is for show as it is an attractive bird more suitable for experienced poultry keepers instead of first time chicken keepers. Rosecombs have large tails, white ear lobes and a large beaded rose comb extending backwards. Face and wattles are cherry – red. In Australia, the black, blue and white are the most popular varieties.
