    a Dominique has a flat rose comb. Barred rock's comb stands up. I have one Dominique that is how I know. [​IMG] they are lovely birds. I really love the red and white chicks, soooo cute.
    here is a pic of my Lucy my Dominique. She is followed by a Red Star. I no longer have any breeds other than orpingtons and Lucy.

    I love the red and white chick! I wonder what it will grow up to look like? Mixed-breed chicks are always so fun; I like trying to picture what they'll look like as adults.

    Thanks everyone. I never had baby chicks that was born under my roof, lol. There in my back bedroom. This is fairly new to me, I got all the other last April from TSC as day old chick were strait run, so didn't know how many were hens or roosters. Luckly only 2 roosters. The White Asiatic Bantam and the small light colored bantam were purchased at the State Fair and had Blue Ribbons on them. Very proud of those too. I'd like to keep everyone posted on their growth and specially the red w/white wings. I'm hoping the light yellow will look like the White Bantam. What do you all think?
