    OK I'm new to the site. I have found this site to be very helpful. So maybe y'all can help me out. I bought 11 hens and a rooster about a month ago. 4 buffs 3 red stars and 4 Dominique and really not sure of the rooster. But I don't think the Dominique's are Dominique's. [​IMG][/IMG]

    I agree that the first is a Barred Rock...Dominiques have rose combs not straight combs like your bird.

    The second looks to me to be a typical White Leghorn rooster.

    I agree...looking closer...wrong comb.
    I've no idea either. Could be a cross of White Leghorn and something else which would give it an different comb.
