    The cockerel is not a dominique.

    The pullet may be, but I can't see her comb to tell if she has a rose comb.

    That first one's definately not a dominique, probably one of the EEs. The other one may be a dominique, what type of comb does it have? Based on the color, it looks like a pullet.

    I just can't figure out how to get these pictures to show up on the screen. Thank you for your input if you did see the pictures, I'll try to go in there and get a picture of the comb.

    Thank you Bamaman, I think you posted pics as I was figuring out how to do it myself. [​IMG] Okay, zatsdeb so when you say double comb you mean like to rows of the bumpy stuff (can you tell I am very new at this?) vs just one row of the bumps? I think s/he only has one row so far. Just for fun here is another picture of some of my other babies!

    Dom's have a rose comb, kinda flat lookin', if it is only one row of points, its probably a Barred rock.

    A rose comb will look flat and broad compared to a single comb.

    If you look at the comb on the brown chick in your last picture it'll look more like that.

    A single comb is real easy to spot looks just like a hair comb. [​IMG]

    Nice chicks, you're going to have a great looking flock! [​IMG]
