    This chick is 6 weeks old. She was in the mixed bantam bin at the mill when I got her. I thought she was a bantam barred rock....but the comb isn't coming right. She wouldn't let me catch her this morning, so I had to make do with taking pictures from a distance. Any ideas?

    And here's a pick of her as a day-old, in case that helps.

    I am brand new to this, but she looks a bit like our Dominique.

    Here are pictures over the past 7 weeks of Henrietta:

    It looks like a Dominique and I wouldn't rule out it being a rooster............

    I did consider a Dominique, but she doesn't have the black wash on her legs...I can't remember if that's a must with Dominique's or not. It would be cool if she was a Dominique though! I started out with a flock of Dominique's 10 years ago, and they've remained my favorites! I haven't been able to get my hands on any around here though.

    Yeah........the dark on the front of the legs is a female trait, not a breed trait.

    Looks like a Dominique cockerel to me.
