I have basically RI Reds and NH Reds, the rooster was a very handsome mutt so I also have hens that are easter eggers. They're all good-sized hens that lay brown and green good-sized to large eggs. I'm thinking of hatching a couple Dominiques just for variety. I did notice, however, that their eggs seem small, and I don't know if I like that. I also wonder whether a Dominique rooster will be as handsome and as much of a gentleman as my RI Red-mutt rooster was (he's gone). And I wonder if Dominiques might get picked on in a mixed crowd, being smaller and more docile. Hmm. I bought a few fertilized Dominique eggs and my broody is sitting on them. I just might grab another breed of egg and throw a couple of those under her too. Any thoughts? Pros and cons of Dominiques vs. Reds?
