    Ok so I got two hens from my local feed store. Was told they were dominiques but after reading about them I am having doubts. I am starting to think barred rock or plymoth. Any ideas? i dont care what they are as long as they are healthy. Thanks in advanced [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Those don't look like my rocks. They look more like dom's to me. Usually The Domoniqe have more white though.(In the pics I've seen)

    They're Plymouth (Barred) Rocks. Dominiques have a rose (?) comb. (I googled them. [​IMG])

    Check the front of the shanks and down the toes, Barred Rocks have olive to dark shading, although I have 1 out of 14 That has no shading.

    Legs are yellow. The combs are what is throwing me off.
