    I think I have heard of them. If so, that is a really good deal. How many are you going to get?

    I have dominiques they are stripped black and white....just like a barred rock except the dominiques have rose combs....and barred rocks tend to be larger....never heard them called black dominiques though

    Far as I know, there is no such thing. A Dominique is barred and that is the only variety. I think someone is making it up and naming their crossbred chicken or just dont know what they have.

    Dominiques are called Dominikers by the Amish and the name has been accepted in many places. Leghorns are also called Leggerns. I have only heard of the barred Dominiques but I just checked Feathersite and they do show a white Dominique. Dominiques have a rose comb and that is helpful in cold climates. If the birds you are looking at have single combs then you are buying a cross breed. They still may be excellent layers if that is your purpose.
