Hi all, I have three pullets from Tractor Supply that were in a bin of assorted chicks and were identified as either Barred Rock or Dominique. It looks like I have two different black and white birds, so am hoping I have at least one Dominique. Any experts want to weigh in?

Thanks, all. Hopefully, they will at least be good layers. All my other current hens are D'uccle and Silkies or Polkies. We want some bigger eggs, so we got these three, a RIR, a mystery chick I think is a sex link and a possible orpington.

Every barred rock I've had has laid large to jumbo eggs. They are also a friendly breed full of personality. My current hen is the largest (she's approximately 7 lbs), heartiest, and friendliest bird in my flock. She's also head hen but is not aggressive towards the other girls.
