    a O.e, is a old english. often called a "fighting bird" even though their not "game" persay... their more of... very very dominant pecking order. and dont be a outsider, but if grown up in the bunch. your welcome. gamefowl-Different story.. OEs are about medium size.. not exactly large. and if you get bantams (like i have). their only ankle tall [​IMG]

    I don't know what a Black Giant Dominecker is...BUT...

    There are Black Jersey Giants and there are Barred Plymouth Rocks and Dominiques. I hear BOTH the barred rocks and the dominiques referred to as "Domineckers."

    Sounds like someone doesn't know what they have OR it's a cross of the two breeds.

    OE's are small and medium size and "Domineckers" are dominiques and they aren't HUGE but they aren't small and Barred plymouth rocks are offen called domineckers too However the two breeds are very different and Barred plymouth rocks are bigger and they have a single comb where domineckers have a rose comb and are a medium size.

    If your looking for something large go with a giant cochin or a jersey giant
