Dominiques

I remember as a child visiting my neighbor’s chicken coop.  They had a large variety of farm birds, all the hardy “farm raised”type.  But one stood out–a beautiful “Dominicker” rooster!  Now, years later, I had the opportunity to start my own flock and searched out the Dominique breed. 

At this time, I have a very small flock that I am slowly working on expanding.  Dom’s are a dual purpose heritage bird that excels a foraging around the farm.  They are listed on the watch list for the Livestock Conservancy and also listed on the Slow Food Ark of Taste.

Contact me for info on hatching eggs or chicks as seasonally allowed.
