aka Dominikers

"Michigan," a Dominique cock of Dominique Farm breeding

The Dominique was the bird that travelled across the country with the pioneers. Known as Dominikers, they were quite hardy and could forage well. This historically important breed is now very rare.

Now, I've never heard of White Dominques, but there they were at the '98 Ohio National, so of course I got pictures!

The Dominique pullet has a distinct spot on it's head and a shadow on the front of the feet & legs. The cockerel has a fuzzy head spot and no foot/leg shadow.
