    One of the main difference is the Barred rock has a straight comb and the Dominique has a rose comb. Their barring is also different but probably most people can't tell. By the way [​IMG]

    Yes that web site is very informative for the Dominique Breed. [​IMG] If you study that web site you will see that there are few and far between of the old true Dominiques around. I only breed Dominiques and have to do alot of culling to get what I want in a strain, but I am getting there.
