Enjoyinging reading. We still are chicken-less. Changed mind on breeds and trying to decide--- have any of you had Dominiques? Trying to find about their temperament more. The thread doesn't say a lot but they are also hard to find. Then there are two checking on more to varying the flock... Trying to find if either are size of Domiques... One is Cream Brabanter but they seem too rare to find, the other is Cream Legbars.
Ah decisions. We have kids visit and they enjoy collecting eggs, holding chickens and learning about them. We are hoping for a calm breed too. We sell their eggs to help pay for their food too.
In the past we had different types....( barred rocks, ameraucanas, white leghorns, buff orpingtons... Are some) we wanted to try something different, not sure if we can get them.
One of my first chickens was a Dominique. Loved her! She was my pal..loved helping me pull weeds..etc..great layer. I lost her to a predator years ago. She was the leader of the flock back then and she was not very friendly to newbies. Definitely had bully tendencies..but nothing out of the ordinary.
