    Ok so I have two Dominique's and I realized a while ago that their combs were different but they were so small I thought maybe I was wrong...well they're getting bigger now and I'm noticing they're def different and their tail feathers are also different...So I think I make have a rooster instead of two pullets??? What do you think...[​IMG]

    Both of them look like pullets to me. But, Donna may not actually be a Dominique. Since she has a single comb instead of the rose comb that Dominiques should have, she may be a Barred Plymouth Rock instead.

    Thanks! This is my first Dominique and they looked so similar as chicks I assumed they were the same breed! I got an "extra" in my order of chicks.

    I agree that they are both pullets. a full body shot would help me to be shore though.

    Both look like pullets to me, too. And I agree with Wyandottes7 that Donna is probably a Barred Rock, not a Dominique.

    They both look like pullets to me, and I agree with Wyandottes7, with that single comb Donna is a Barred Rock instead of a Dominique.
