    My mommy ordered both so I could be either one. What do you think?

    if that chick got a single comb, little bumps on his comb, its a Maran. If rose comb, smooth, then its a Dominque.

    Sorry for the really stupid newbie question but when will the comb protrude? S/he is 7 days old today and I don't see any indication of comb yet.

    As for the single comb, you should feel and see the comb that looks like a serrated edge of a steak knive.

    Another week wont hurt to find out.
