The dominique should have a rose comb (flat against the head), the rock should have a single comb (like a blade sticking up and running down the middle of the head). That's the biggest difference I know of. Hope this helps!

In addition to the comb, the barred rocks' feathers are straight lines of black and white all the way across the feather. The dominiques' feathers are more unorganized. The stripes form something more like V's rather than straight stripes.
