    The proper name is Barred Plymouth Rock, with "Barred" being the color variety. There are Buff Plymouth Rocks, white, etc.

    If you just hatched the eggs from your Dominique hens yes they would be pure. But the eggs from the Barred Rocks would be a mixed breed.

    Even though they look similar, the difference between Barred Rocks and Dominiques is more than just comb deep. [​IMG]
