    I have 2 Barred Rocks and two Dominique but I can't tell which is which yet. Can you help me figure out which she is?

    How can you tell? I keep looking for answers online but their comb isn't in yet and I can't tell.

    Have you tried "what breed or gender is this?" It's best if birds are 6-8 weeks old or more. There is only 1 barred bird in your photo, you mentioned two. The one you pictured looks to be a Barred Rock pullet.

    Please submit pictures of the 2 BR and 2 Dominiques

    Barred Rocks have a single comb, looks like a row of spikes. Dominiques have a rose comb, looks like a flat wedge.

    I have Doms, and she looks like a Dom to me. She has a flat wedged comb. Rocks will have small saw tooth comb at that age. She is very cute. I love my Doms. They are my favorite ;).

    Sorry, I have no personal experience with Barred Rock or Dominiques but I did just want to say that I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.
