    We got a Dominique in Febuary!

    I order her for the Rose Comb but, didn't really bother with her much we gave more attention to others than got more babbies so she has been pushed aside [​IMG]

    so of course she really doesn't want to be held much but, I have really taken notce of her!

    She seems to be getting prettier every day!

    I am thinking of calling Welp tomorrow to add some!!!

    can you tell me how your Dominque:
    size of eggs
    anything else you can think of

    Dominiques are my favorites! They will forage for most of their food, this is part of the genes to surrive. They lay a medium size egg, the color is light to medium brown, they are very curious natured and alot of people select them for pets. If allowed to free range their feed cost will be lower than any other for the egg production. They have a longer life span than most. I have a batch in the bator on day 5. Here is the best info that you will ever read. You will learn in this reading the true standards and history. [​IMG]

    I loved my dominiques. They layed big brown eggs, nearly everyday. They were very sweet birds, I loved their personalities!
