I've had this Dominique since it was about 14 weeks old and never questioned its gender until it started crowing a few weeks ago. Then I started noticing some tail feathers coming in and its comb has become huge lately. No eggs yet.

Still not sure though as there are no spurs and the comb appears to be the style that Dominique hens have.

Here it is this morning:
400


Any help would be appreciated!

Looks more like a Barred Rock rooster to me. That isn't the comb of a typical Dominique.

Thanks for the help! Within minutes of posting this, he started trying to climb up on my hens and all doubt was quickly dispelled. He has since been rehomed to someone who was ready for a rooster!
