    She could be a cuckoo Marans - she has a single comb and white legs/beak. Barred rocks have yellow legs/beak but if sh'e been laying a lot they do bleach out.

    She's not a Dominiuqe they have a rose comb and lighter build. She is a nice hen, though.

    Here's an article outlining the differences.

    The comb says not definitely not Dominique. [​IMG] Barred Rock or as someone mentioned maybe Cuckoo Maran.
