Dominique

$2.55$3.85

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