Newbie question; I think, after all of my research, I would like to add 4 Dominique hens to my flock this spring. I did a search of BYC and didn't really come up with a lot of info although I see many people have them. Would someone (or 2 or3) with experience with the breed give me the scoop and personal opinions. My local breeder keeps telling me to just go with Barred rock but I like the heritage aspect of Dominiques (plus just a little stubborn) Is there really not much difference? The rest of My flock will consist of 4 Austrolorps, 4 Americaunas, and 4 Wellsummers. I might want to try the Favorells next year. Advice is surely appreciated.
