    do dominiques look like barred rocks as chicks? My neighbor has what she was told is a dominique however it looks just like my other neighbors barred rock chick. I believe it's around 5-7 weeks old right now.

    The difference between Dominique and Barred Rocks is Dominique's have rose combs and Barred Rocks have single combs. But as chicks they look basically the same.
