We got 3 Dominique pullets, or so we thought. This one is much lighter than the other two and has had wattles and a comb for a long time; the other two don’t yet have wattles or red combs. They are about 12 weeks old.
”She” is the dominant one of the flock and I noticed her starting to crow this morning. 😳 I’m wondering if our Lucy should actually be named Ricky. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Thank you. I’m trying to convince my husband, would be able to elaborate on what features identify it as a rooster? Thanks, again!

A key feature with barred breeds is males have wide white bars, large red combs, large red wattles, pointed saddle, & hackle feathers. We can't for get about the fancy tail feathers.
The other features go along with non barred breeds too.

Females barred breeds have wider black bars, small pale combs, & wattles, rounded saddle, & hackle feathers.

My Heritage Plymouth Barred Rock pullet for comparison might help.
