    Looks like a female barred Rock, but a better pic would sure help.

    If she has a straight comb, she's a Rock.

    Lots of folks call any barred bird a Dominique or dominekker, it's kind of a regional thing.

    X2 on donrae's post. Barred Rocks have single combs. Dominiques have rose combs.
