Hellos Okay... So I want to get some dominiques. I want a breed which I can tame down and them all be lap chickens, and I want a hardy egg laying one, too. We live in my. View, Arkansas, so have hot summers and pretty cold winters... Eggs not *top* priority, but a bonus LOL. Ive had both barred rocks and one Dom and I didn't care for the br. I was completely enraptured with the Dom for the way she was so pretty and inquistive and the way she just carried herself LOL. She wasn't tame because I didn't even attempt it, but WILL tame the next ones down. I was planning on ordering 12-15 pul and three roos from cackle. What's your experiences with cackle? Are theyre doms true to type? Personality? Broodiness(I hope they'll be broody). They'll be in a medium pen as the Akita has 'loved to-death'two pea-hens . I prefer purebreeds and I love the history behind them, too. What do u guys think?
