Dominique or Not?

I've always assumed that the Dominique hen I have, Duck, is a Dominique because her coloring is the same as her buddies. I'm wondering about this though because her comb is different than the other dominiques. Duck has a single comb and the others have rose combs.

This is a picture of two of the Dominiques. The blurryish one in front is Duck. In the back is one of the other Dominiques for comparison.
Here's a better picture of Duck:
Any ideas?

Duck is a Barred Rock.
This may sound kind of stupid but I also posted a similar question (before this thread) on the Dominique thread. One of the users on there said that maybe a Dominique had been accidentally bred with a Barred Rock which is why she has a single comb.

Thanks for all the replies. It's clear that Duck has some Barred Rock blood in her.
