    I got these girls from a friend to day. She didn't know much about them. I think they are Barred Rocks. Any opinions?

    Quote:The combs look like they have been cut. They are super short to their heads and almost look like scar tissue.

    If the combs are rose combs than they are doms. Single combs are barred.

    Quote:Their appears to only be one line of comb, but again they are cut so short I can't be 100%. I figured they were Barred Rocks though.

    Are you sure the combs have been cut? To me the pics look like nice, tidy little rose combs. Could you get a good clear pic of one of the combs?

    I was thinking the same thing, rose combs...didn't really look like singles

    Quote:From the pictures I found on line about the two different breeds, the combs on my hens are smooth. There is no definition that I saw on the hens that are classified as dominique.

    I'll take closer pictures tomorrow and post them, but i'm leaning towards the Barred Rock thing. I guess I just have to breed them and see what happens, huh?
