I know the question of "which breed should I get" is highly personal and subjective, but I'm looking for some thoughts from those that have kept Wyandottes and Dominiques. I'm trying to decide between the two breeds for a small flock of 5-6 hens. I don't intend to start with a rooster, though I may decide to add one in future years. I want a dual-purpose bird that is a decent egg layer, hardy (not just weather - we don't get too extreme in WA - but just general hardiness and healthiness), and good at foraging. My intent is to keep them in the coop and large enclosed run while I'm at work, then free range in the afternoons and evenings. Quiet is a plus, but not required. I'm not looking for a pet that will necessarily want to sit on my lap, but it would be nice if they weren't afraid of me and wanted to work alongside me in the garden. Availability isn't an issue, because my local feed store will be carrying both breeds this spring. I'm sure I can't go wrong with either, but I'd love to tap into BYC's knowledge and experience to hear your thoughts. Thanks!
