    Need someone who can read barred head spots like tea leaves- Cream Legbar x Dominque chicks

    I thought, after a couple of hatches of Dominique chicks and then some Dominique crosses, I would be able to read head spots by now. However, these littles have me stumped.

    Egg bound cull, bruising??

    Hey y'all! Had a real bad egg bind today, she was too far gone by the time I got to her and hadn't been acting peculiar the previous day.

    Dominique hens

    I have 2 ten week old Dominique hens and I was wondering how can you tell them apart from barred rocks? I also have 4 ten week old barred rocks. They all look the same to me I’m just waiting for the tails to grow out more.
