I bought a really nice Dominique rooster from a top breeder at a poultry show, but there were no hens for sale. I want to get some hens for him but I don't know where to look for good birds. I ordered some Cubalaya chicks from Ideal this summer and have been really disappointed with the quality of their chicks. I ordered Black Breasted Reds (BBR), but what I got is something that does not even look similar to a BBR. On top of that, they seem to have some kind of a genetic defect that causes them to suddenly die. A six month old cockerel (from Ideal) just fell over and died this morning in front of my eyes. This is the fifth Ideal bird to do this. I have 30 chickens of different breeds and none of them do this. I am wondering if anyone has ordered Dominiques from a hatchery? If so, who from and what has been your experience with their birds? Thanks.
