    We have a Dominique and Barred Rock, both 10 weeks old and very hard to tell apart. Their combs look a bit different. Anyone able to tell me which is which?

    I can't see the pics very well. But I think 1 is Dom & 2 is BR. The BR should have a straight comb.

    Dominiques have a rose comb and Barred Rocks a single. The pic does not enlarge on my phone. The comb should be very different. Are you sure you don't have two domimiques?

    The dominique comb might look like a little cushion when undeveloped, I think it is a rose comb.

    X 3 is what I was thinking, but went off of given info. [​IMG]

    I don't have any.... yet! [​IMG] (chicken math) but have read nice things about them. I will admit it would be nice to have a variety and be able to tell the difference between my 3 BR easier.

    Thanks everyone! After further inspection the shapes of their combs are definitely different. One a straight ridge, and the other like a cussion. Now I can accurately say I love my Dominique! Sweetest girl we have had yet!
