ok so my love of chickens had me purchase a surprise box from cackle. I got a few birds that honestly I am unsure of what breed they are. how do you tell the difference in coloration between a barred rock and a Dominique. can anyone lend a hand.
they are about to be 6 months old. Im gonna have to look again at the combs because I believe there are 2 alike and other two different but all the same colorationthe Comb is the best way to tell the difference between a Barred Rock and Dominique. I don't study the correct terminology for combs but the Barred Rocks will have a single comb that looks like a mohawk. How old are they?
well honestly they been out in the yard till night time. most the time the chicks go back in their coop and chill out, but for some reason these boogers are nosey and roam the yard running with the ducks and checking out the baby hogs. I have plenty of hay and coop stays toasty. the weather is up and down so much. it was 40 today as a high and this weekend we are looking at almost 70 so welcome to the southern weather lol.You put babbies outside in 20 degree weather?!?
well for lack of me being lazy I call them chicks, but yes I agree they handle it all. heck they love the rain with my ducks. its funny to see them literally doing a flapping wing dance. I die laughing.6 months old, they are chickens not chicks so they can handle those Temps
