    [​IMG][​IMG]Help! I am having trouble identifying this chicken. I know it is what it is, but not knowing is driving me crazy. It was one of those "Free Chicks" from MMH. I wish they would tell you what it is and the sex. If anyone could also tell me if it will be a cock or a hen that would be great also. Thanks!

    Thank you! It was frustrating, but I think I have it figured out.

    its hard to tell by the picture, you have to look at the comb. barred rocks have a single comb, dominiques have a rose comb.

    Quote:I was going to say the same thing. Looks like it has a rose comb so I think it's a dominique. I am pretty new to chickens so I could be wrong.

    Do you have any pics from when you first got it? I am interested in a shot showing the headspot. Also how old is it in the pics shown?
