    I have 4 girls like this, nine weeks old. Is it too soon to tell from the comb (or lack of comb) whether they are BR or D? And the feathers? They all 4 have black stripes on the beak. Does that designate anything? Thanks for any info![​IMG]

    Barred Rock.
    Dominique would have a rose comb.

    Definitely a barred rock ...Dominique's are whiter than barred rocks in my opinion and there feathers aren't layed out as even so that is definitely a barred rock......and pretty birds you have there

    They're Barred Plymouth Rocks for sure. Dominiques have rose combs.

    Since your bird has a single comb, you have a Barred Plymouth Rock.

    Agreed. Definitely BRs with those single combs.
