    I have 2 week old Dominique chicks (not hatchery stock, good breeder quality).
    Based off the darkness of the barring so far I'm guessing girls, and they have no comb development (I'd hope not at this young of an age!). Their legs are also very dark.
    Please when saying, "Boy", "Girl", "Pullet", or "Cockerel", provide me with why you believe so.
    I know they are very young to even get a good guess, but I'd also like to know more about how barring works with girls and boys, because I've noticed the smaller of the 2 has more of a white then light grey color on the body and even the tail, and more stripes on the wings, compared to the bigger one, who has more light grey on dark grey, and only one stripe on each wing, and no light grey or white on the tail.

    Not 100% but pic2 looks like a cockeral to me. Those feet are huge! Does it stand on one foot? My Alpha Roo yesterday,he's done the one foot stance since he was a chick.(maybe a clue??)

    I haven't seen the 2nd one standing on only one foot, though I know my rooster does that, thanks for your input!
