Top Reasons To Choose The Dominique Chicken
The Dominique is a hardy, sometimes-broody, and docile bird that makes a great addition to any flock.
History and Origins
It’s important to note and respect that the Dominique’s were once considered an endangered, and at-risk, breed of chicken.
The Dominique chicken is a striking, pretty, medium-sized, stout chicken that is black and white; no other color combinations exist for this breed.

One advantage to Dominiues, especially if you live in a place where you cannot legally keep roosters, or if plan on breeding them, is that they are autosexing at birth.
Personality and Temperament
Dominique’s are friendly, docile, calm birds perfect for a homestead or backyard flock.
