    Okay so I've thought this entire time my Dobby was a BR, but the more I read and study her comb I've realized this isn't a BR trait. It seems to be a Dom trait... I thought it was a pea comb but Doms have rose combs. Correct?
    Anyone know more about this than the average joe?
    She also has dark black streaks that run down the front of her legs.

  2. My doms look just like Dobby. At this point in growth, the only way I can tell in a hurry is the comb.[​IMG]

    She could be a Dominique, or honestly she could be a mixed breed. Rose combs are dominant, barring is dominant, and black is dominant over many other colors. So it could have been a mix, who knows really.How old is the bird?

    She looks like a Dominique, not a Barred Rock.
