    Ok, I've decided that for my new breed of bantams this spring....I want Dominique's.
    Hopefully someone on here has some as I do not want large hatchery stock! I would like to have a few adult birds around March 2008 and I will take eggs also. Hopefully I am getting some Orps from a couple of people on here come spring for my standard size birds and I am wanting a new bantam breed and Doms are it. I am in East Tn, can pick up within a reasonable distance and would pay top dollar for good birds. Please e-mail me with any info. on birds or eggs you may have for sale around March............Thanks, Jeff

    Good Luck I looked and looked for 2 years for the lil buggers. Finally after little to no success in finding Pure breds no less ( had a few try and sell me bantam barred rock crosses) I just ordered 10 from Cackle. I still have 5 left as they were not the hardiest creatures. I'll probably get another 10 if they are available? I got the last of their hatch from this year and that was in July!! Anyways its a start for me. So far I'm happy with the characteristics on these, as in the past I have had awesome standard size birds, so we shall see.

    I like them quite well. I will have to order a few more though in the spring to have a decent size flock to choose from. I will say this.. All have good rose combs, proper barring, and good leg color. Unlike the standard size though I could not tell sexes right away by the spots on their heads.
