Valley Hatchery proudly offers the historic Dominique chicken, a breed steeped in American heritage. These chickens, lovingly known as “Dominikers” or “Dominecker,” trace their origins back to the early 1800s in New England, United States. Recognized by the American Poultry Association in 1874, the Dominique holds a special place in poultry history as one of America’s oldest chicken breeds.

The Dominique chicken is renowned for its distinctive physical characteristics. The breed is easily identifiable by its barred feathering, reminiscent of the Barred Plymouth Rock, and a notable rose comb. These features not only add to their aesthetic appeal but also serve a practical purpose. The barred pattern offers camouflage against aerial predators, making Dominiques an excellent choice for free-range environments. Moreover, they are well-suited for colder climates and can thrive in densely populated areas, owing to their adaptability and quiet nature.

When it comes to behavior and temperament, Dominique chickens are known for their calm and gentle disposition. While they can exhibit protective behavior if they feel threatened, instances of aggression towards humans are rare. This makes them an ideal breed for families and first-time chicken keepers, offering a safe and enjoyable poultry-raising experience.

Dominique hens exhibit commendable maternal instincts. They are known to frequently go broody and make wonderful mothers, which is beneficial for those interested in naturally expanding their poultry brood.

In terms of productivity, Dominique hens are quite prolific, laying approximately 180 to 260 medium to large brown eggs per year. A fully matured Dominique rooster weighs around 7 pounds, while the hens average about 5 pounds. These chickens are not just productive but also have a respectable lifespan, often living for over 8 years, making them a long-term commitment for poultry enthusiasts.

At Valley Hatchery, we are committed to the health and well-being of our chickens. We offer day-old Dominique chicks, ready for you to raise and nurture. By choosing our hatchery, you are guaranteed healthy, vibrant chicks that will grow into beautiful, productive members of your flock.
