    What is it about dark colored chicks that makes them look cuter and wiser than light colored chicks? Yours are super cute!

    OK - to ask a newbie question to you breed experts out there...

    What's the difference between barred rocks and dominques? My doms look very much like those BRs...

    Quote:Barred Rocks have single combs and doms have rose combs.

    I believe it has something to do with the barring too but the combs are they only way I can tell the difference.

    Also, Dominique's are more upright with their head and tail carriage, and more petite, where as barred rocks are a bit more heavy built, and their head/neck/back/tail line is more straight.
