    They are Dominiques, frequently called "Dominikers." They are one of our oldest breeds of chickens in the USA, and they were used in developing the barred Plymouth Rock. The biggest difference between the two is the comb. This is the chicken I grew up with on our farm and I have many fond memories of our Dominikers.

    Quote:They look like Dominiques to me, but it is hard to tell the the babies apart (barred rock/Dominiques/cuckoo Marans). You will know for sure when they get their combs. Dominiques always have a rose comb and barred rocks have a single, straight comb.
