    Hey Chicken Forum gang, I'm looking for a nice line of old fashioned Dom's to add to my little chicken operation! Not interested in ANYTHING from a hatchery but if you know someone with some experience breeding them please let me know. THANKS!

    My friend in South Carolina raises them. He used to be the president of the Dominique Club of America, his Dominique graced the cover of Backyard Poultry in the Dec. 2007/Jan. 2008 cover) Do you want me to ask him if you can contact him?

    "Working" with them is half the fun. I'm sure you'll enjoy them.
