    They told me this was an Australorp but it looks like a barred rock to me. Can anyone tell me what it is?

    Looks like a Barred Rock to me, unless it has a rose comb, in which case its a Dominique.

    I have Barred Rocks and Dominiques.
    Looks like it may be one or the other, hard to tell with out seeing the comb.

    Cute chick! Looks like a Barred Rock to me, though it could also be a male black sex-link.

    This maybe a better picture but I went back to Pet Club today and they said OOPPs. The breeder messed up. She is a good looking bird and now I have 10 barred rocks and no australorps.
    Thanks to all,
    Mirando
