    Ok our Dominque is a roo, we bought this "barred rock pullet" at a local chicken stock sale. She/It is looking very rooish to me. I know its dark, but those are some crazy tail feathers.

    I say its a barred rock because of its comb, and color. And i think its a roo.

    How old is the barred bird? I'm thinking cockerel, but not pure barred Rock. With that dark barring and leakage it's a mixed breed.

    I agree it's a mixed breed roo. You can see red leakage on it's wings as well as the tail feathers and head gear. .
