    This is my my baby that we rescued from some evil little boys and have had him ever since! [​IMG] I have learned a lot about chickens since we've had him/her however I can't tell if he/she is a Dominique or Barred Rock or if there is even a difference. Also I made the assumption that he was a boy when we first got him. But after posting pictures some of the BYC members said they thought he was a hen!?!? [​IMG] Now that he is older maybe ya'll can tell! Thanks in advance!!!!

    I'd have to agree with everyone, he looks just like my barred rock cockerels.
