Anyone chance anyone knows how to tell the difference of a Dominique 3 day old vs a barred rock?
They have different combs. Barred rocks have single combs and dominiques have rose combs.
Yea I know that. I wasnt sure if there was a way to tell the difference when they are babies (before combs).
If you see little bumps it's the start of points on single comb. Look close.
Can you post a picture of the two if you have them?
You can still see the comb difference when they are just hatched
You can see the difference at hatch. Straight combed chicks have a little ridge of sawteeth. Rose combed chicks have a wide, flat spot.
They all appear to have straight combs. There's 4 that look the same. 3 are barred rocks and 1 is a rare exotic mystery chick. I'm thinking maybe maran?? now. I will try and get pics soon. Trying to let them settle in at the moment.
