    I ordered 12 Dominiques. This is the only chick with a single comb :mad::

    The other combs look like this:

    Dominiques have rose combs, so the single comb is a barred rock.

    If the dot on top of the head is clearly defined and it has a black wash down the front of the legs then its a pullet.

    Yes, I just looked and there is clearly a big white/gray dot on its head and it does have a black wash down the front of its legs. Cool, I hope its a pullet. I already have 8 male yellow chicks to cull. I know I have a few Dominique roosters, I am going to keep one or two. I don't want to cull the Dominiques, or the one Barred Rock, I was going to but then they sent me 9 extra males [​IMG]!

    Looks like a BR, but a single comb can crop up among rose combs and so on because it is a recessive trait.

    Where did you order from? Those last two chicks dont look like Doms. They look like mutts to me. [​IMG]

    Quote:[​IMG] Yeah, I know. I ordered from Ideal. These are my first chicks.

    Edit: This is the only other chick I have a picture of right now, what do you think? I will post pictures of the rest tomorrow.
