    Well originally, I thought we hatched a BR chick. This chick is 1 of 24 eggs that we tried to hatch and the only one that decided to join us in the world! Our first attempt at incubating was pretty pathetic and had many temp variations. Oh well, this chick is called 'survivor'.

    Is it a BR or Dominique? Are we a hen that is going to provide some nice eggs, or a rooster that may be a possible breeder in the future? What qualities if Dominque, should we expect in a hen/rooster.

    thanks guys,

    Does it have a rose comb or a single comb, do you know?
    If it has a rose comb it is a Dominique and if it has a single comb it is a Barred Rock...

    If you don't know if it has a rose or single comb this link should help it has a lot of useful information in it including comb types...
