Dominique

$2.70$3.95

Dominique Chickens are considered a “heritage” bird because it is considered America’s oldest breed of chicken.  Dominique hens tend to be calm and personable.  Their calm, steady demeanor makes them successful as show birds or family pets.  At first glance, Dominiques and Barred Rocks appear strikingly similar.  The strongest difference is the Dominiques possess a rose comb while Barred Rocks possess a single comb.  Dominiques are considered a dual purpose breed, but they are excellent layers, producing 200-260 medium to large brown eggs annually.  Dominique hens are broody. They do grow to a good table weight, as well with a yellow skin color.
