    I have an order for some barred rocks and Dominiques. Problem is... my friend ordered the Dominiques, and I the Barred Rocks. I looked up pictures online and. .. they look the same! How do I tell them apart so I can separate them?

    The chicks come in tomorrow and we need away to tell them apart. Oh dear!

    Look at the combs. The Dominique have rose combs, the Barred Rock have a single comb.

    Rose comb in chick (This is not a Dom, but I can't find any decent DOM chick comb pictures).


    Here is a single comb
