Product Description

Dominique Chickens

Dominique Chickens are the oldest American chicken, developed in New England sometime during colonization of North America. The Dominique Chicken remained the most popular American Breed until the development of the Barred Plymouth Rock in the mid 19th century.

The Dominique Chicken is a calm and gentle bird that can be easy to show. It’s docile temperament makes for great layers and good family or backyard birds. The Dominique Hens are dependable and hardly layers of medium sized brown eggs. The roosters occasionally tend to act aggressively toward humans or other roosters. The Dominique Chicken is a good looking bird with black and creamy white barred plumage patterns. The barring is more staggered and less parallel than the plumage of the Barred Plymouth Rock. Dominique Chickens have a bright red rose comb with bright red wattles and ear lobes.

Overall, the Dominique Chicken is a beautiful chicken breed that will dependably produce eggs in marginal weather. The birds’ plumage pattern, also known as “hawk coloring”, offers some protection against some aerial predators, helping the bird survive in backyard free range environments. The Dominique Chicken will also dress nicely and produce quality tasting meat. They are extremely versatile birds!
