    I think it's actually a Dominique ( because of the comb) I would say a hen.

    A hen, but I'm not sure on breed. Post a better photo of the head; I can't see the comb well enough to tell if it is a single comb (Barred Rock) or a rose comb (Dominique).

    It's a single comb, the spikes are very close together and the camera got dust on the lens so the picture was blurry.
