    Just curious, I've been told a dominecker but I think he may be something else.

    Also I am new here and new to raising chickens. Just inherited 14 hens and this guy from my mom.

    Nope, not a Dominique. Looks like a Black Star (also called Black Sex-Link) rooster, or a poor quality Barred Rock/Barred Rock mix.

    Not a Dominique. He's probably either a Barred Plymouth Rock mix (or a hatchery-quality one), or a Black Sex-link.

    Black sex link (basically he had one barred parent and one non-barred, straight combed parent).
