    CLICK ON REPLY. JUST ABOVE WHERE YOU TYPE THE MESSAGE, THERE IS A PAPER CLIP SYMBOL. CLICK ON IT AND BROWSE IN YOUR PICTURE FOLDER AND CLICK THE PIC YOU WANT TO ADD. THE PIC MUST BE SAVED ON YOUR COMPUTER BEFORE DOING THIS. HOPE THIS HELPS

    Barred rocks have straight combs, Dominiques have rose combs. At this age the Rocks will look like a little sawtooth, and the Doms will be just a wide flat spot.
