    I hatched them from eggs that were given to me. Unknown origin so I can't ask what kind of chickens he has. Fresh eggs sold at a farmers market

    Yeah, probably mostly mixed. You may have some pure bred birds, but you'll have to wait until they're older to see for sure. Probably Wyandottes and barred Rocks. Could be Dominiques also, or simply mixes of Wyandottes and Rocks---that can look like a Dominique mix pretty easily....
