Dominiques are one of America’s oldest breeds of chicken, dating back to the early 1800’s when they were commonly referred to as “Dominikers”. A popular breed for early settlers because they are good foragers and a good dual purpose breed. Dominiques were used in developing
the Barred Plymouth Rock that are commonly confused with Dominiques, which may have played a roll in the Dominiques’ near extinction.
