they look so similar to me.
Barred rocks have single combes.
Dominiques have a rose comb.
Barred Rocks are a larger fowl also. I have raised both. Both are great layers. My BR's tended to weigh a bit more.
Here's a great comparison:
thanks. seeing them side by side and i am glad to see IT'S NOT MY FAULT i can't tell them apart. will read the info.
Pickels, I not only couldn't tell them apart, I was too dumb to know I couldn't tell them apart!! What I now know to be Barred Rocks have been called Dominiques since I picked them up from the feed store 8 months ago!! ...hopefully they haven't suffered any emotional trauma, lol!! I am having a terrible time thinking of them as other than Doms though since that is all I have known them to be till now. I do like their combs better than the flat Dominique ones though so I am pretty happy with what they turned out to be, lol!! Darlene
if they were real kids, they would sue you for their therapy bills. but since they're chicken kids.........well, you got off easy.
I never bought them a bicycle either so I'm sure they are headed for a life of crime!!
Wonder what I did to my BR girl, Ivy, to make her sneak up the steps and onto the deck four times a day to try to steal scratch out of that magic red can, LOL? Bad girl!! I never called her a Dom!
