    Is she a barred rock or dominique? It's so hard to tell the difference, I had ordered dominique but don't think that's what I got.

    From the picture, that looks like a single comb, so I vote Rocks

    Yes I say Barred. if her little comb looks like this VVVV like sharp little pointy teeth she is a BR. Phoebe is a barred rock [​IMG]
    Willie is a Dominique her comb is wide and flat [​IMG]
    Then here is Claude a Dom Cockerel he has the start of classic rose comb. he is a lovely bird and is FREE to anyone who will not eat him. [​IMG]
