Dominique chickens (pullets and cockerels) roosting.
"The hatch went great. The chicks are beautiful,
we got 10 out of 12. They are doing very good, thank you very much."

"I used to have a single Dominique hen in my flock - she was given to me and has since passed on, but we really liked her and look forward to having more Dominiques around!" -Caitlin, Galena, Maryland
year, in my Language Arts class, we read a novel in which the main character
hatches eggs as a science project. Several years ago, I had an epiphany
that I could incubate and hatch in conjunction with reading the novel. Working
with the science teacher - this project has flourished over the years. We
have a great hatch rate -- and are very careful throughout the incubation
process to monitor the temperature and humidity. Additionally, we candle
and weigh the eggs." -Tona, Madison, Ohio|

"Three years ago you shipped me Dominique hatching eggs that would become our favorite chickens. We just love them. They really have been the most wonderful chickens, bringing us much joy and many hours of lap snuggles. We lost one of our sweet roosters, Zeb, this past fall, but while he was around, every time we would go out into the field, Zeb would race up to us and fly up into our arms. He would happily stay there, content to be held, until you would put him down (sometimes after an hour's nap in the Adirondack chair together)." -Natalie, Lexington, Kentucky
