    So was told that " Dominique pullet has a distinct spot on it's head and a shadow on the front of the feet & legs. The cockerel has a fuzzy head spot and no foot/leg shadow " But our Birdzilla now looking like she might be a boy ( tried to take on Chuck our Rooster ) but looking at baby pictures she had all the marking of a girl... Can only post baby pictures of her till the morning and then try to get a clean shot when she/he stops moving.. [​IMG] and here is one with the legs... [​IMG]

    So is the saying true the dot and the shadow on the legs and feet mean a girl?

    It sounds like s/he is much older now. Do you have more recent pictures?

    I bought a female dominique from MPC and it looks very similar to yours the white spot on mine is a little bit larger, but all black elsewhere and dark legs. Ku'co, our dominique is 2 weeks old and by far the friendliest and most active of all 5 of our chicks. Great personality, we love her and pray she's is really a girl [​IMG]

    Ok got pictures this morning.. My problem with taking pictures is not the chicks running away it is them all wanting to climb into my lap.. [​IMG]

    A decent head shot [​IMG]


    It is the tail that is making me think Birdzilla is a boy... and the size and the fact he/she is not afraid of our boy Chuck what so ever.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but it's got the wrong kind of comb to be a dominique. I know Wyandottes often have a single comb and they are still Wyandottes, but I do not know if this is the case for dominiques. It looks more like a a Cuckoo Marans hen to me.

    eta: The tail is confusing but *I* do not see any pointy saddle feathers on it. [​IMG]

    Epps... was told the egg was from a Dominque..
    Here is a better comb shot.. [​IMG]

    Birdzilla was born on the 14 of July if this helps with the sexing of he/she.
