    We just got 25 Red Star pullets, 5 Black Star pullets, 2 Araucanas and 1 mystery rare free chick. I am trying to figure out what breed our rare chick is. Can anyone help? The rare chick is black with a little gold spot on top of its head. Its wings are starting to look like a barred rock or dominique. I don't know. How do I add the picture? I am new here. When I figure out how to do it, I'll add it so it's easier to give ideas.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    A Barred Rock will have a single comb and a Dom will have a rose? comb

    What's photobucket? Is it like shutterfly, dotphoto, winkflash and snapfish? If so, I can do that.

    Thanks!

    Thanks. I do have a dotphoto account that I use often. Another question: Does anyone know the difference between the male and female chicks for barred rock and dominique? This chick was all black with the gold on the top of its head where my black star chicks(pullets) had gold on their wings, cheeks and butts.

    With both of those breeds... the females will have a more compact spot as to where the males will have more of a mess of a spot... could be a bit here and there. There was a post not long ago and there were pics to show the difference.

    Oh yeah...hold on...have a link brb


    Ok... I almost forgot I had this..... this is for Doms... but it is very similar for BRs
