I'm thinking probably a roo?

    We got the brown egg layer mix from McMurray and extras were sent in with it, but I am not one to complain about free chickens! This one is very different from the others. I thought it was a Barred Rock, but he/she's feathers are different from the other 3 Barred Rocks we have and the comb looks almost like a rose comb. Is it just because it is a rooster? Or maybe it is a possible Dominique that slipped in? What do you think? They are 11 weeks - this is a pic I took today.

    Yep, that rose comb means it's a dominique. The different feathers--lighter in color--means it's a roo.

    Definitely a Dominique Cockerel. And a handsome one at that.

    Pretty Dominique Rooster. He'll be quite a looker when he's fully feathered.
