Question, on a Wyandotte fb page "blade leader" as a term has been used, can any one give a definition as to what it refers to.

The blade refers to the comb. The leader is the spike at the rear which according to the breed standard follows the line of the neck at a specific angle.

A blade leader on a rose comb sticks up vertically instead of following the line of the head. I will get a pic for you.

sue55 and redjohanna, thank you both for your responses to my question, from the photo I can now see exactly what a blade leader looks like.

It was a shame as he was a nice bird besides that comb.

Perhaps plastic surgery or botox could rectify his comb.
