About Dominique ChickensAbout Dominique Chickens

DominiquernChickens are dual purpose birds. They excel in egg production and lay a steadyrnthree, large, brown eggs a week long into the winter months. Hardy survivors,rnthe Dominique can survive a cold winter or a hot, humid summer. Dominiquesrnmature quickly. A medium size fowl dresses out as an acceptable three-poundrntable bird.rnrn

rnrnDominiques chickensrngrew up with America. In colonial days the Dominique fended for themselves asrnforagers of seeds, insects, and plants. Colonial America valued the Dominique'srnfeathers as fill for their pillows and mattresses. rnrn

rnrnrnrnBroody Dominiquernhens make good mothers and pets. The hens have exceptional success and lowrnmortality rates raising their brood. The hens have a calm, friendly demeanor. However,rnDominique roosters are contentious and a worthy opponents to predators. Ownersrnhave seen roosters kill snakes and minks. Dominiques handle both confinementrnand free-range foraging equally well. Dominiques exhibit an incrediblernadaptability to their given environment.rnrn

rnrnrnrnDominique arerndescribed as hawk-colored in reference to their plumage patterning. Theyrndisplay black barring over their entire white bodies. They sport medium redrncombs, wattles, and earlobes on a medium frame. Many confuse the Dominque withrnthe Barred Rock breed. Experts can tell the difference immediately as thernDominque has a red rose comb; whereas, the Barred Rock has a red single comb.rnMales have a “U” shaped back with an upright tail. Female backs follow a morernnatural outline sloping down from head to tail.rnrn

rnrnrnrnCater to yourrnDominique's foraging instincts. Provide them adequate runs with ample bugs,rnseed and pebbles. Of course, a little attention and a good layer food will payrnrich dividends in egg and meat production. Keep the number of Dominiquernroosters to a minimum. However, you may want to keep a sufficient number aroundrnto ward off predators and to propogate this endangered species.
