I was told this handsome fellow is a Dominique. He has a single comb instead of a rose comb. Does anyone have any ideas?
No, he's a hatchery type barred rock.
Cannot be a Dom. By breed definition, they cannot be single combed.
The Dominique and Barred Rocks have been criss crossed by lots of folks, and many people believe that hatcheries have also mixed them up. FWIW
Your bird is not a Dominique. He'd pass for a Barred Rock, so better you go with that.
