    May be the wrong section, but it looks like your 'Dominiques' are indeed Barred Rocks. The primary differences are that Dominiques have rose combs, while Barred Rocks have single combs; and Barred Rocks would be larger by a pound or two at maturity. Old-timers still often call Barred Rocks 'Dominiques' or 'Dominikers.'

    Mighty Mouse probably is game mix.

    Red Star probably is a Red Star.

    Rock might be a Delaware. He could also be a cross, hard to say what, but could be a White Rock crossed with a Barred Rock, or? But he's way too big to be a Leghorn, I think, especially if he and those two Cornish are all full-grown.

    the 2 cornish aren't full grown yet. i don't think "delaware" or the "barred rock" are either. thanks for your help.
