Day Old Dominique Bantams
Hatching February to August.
A miniature size of the Dominique Standard chicken breed and recognized by the American Poultry Standard of Perfection in 1960. A great back yard chicken and show bird that will delight all. the Bantam variety is in the "Rose Comb Clean Leg" class.Many customers are excited to see how our Bantam Dominique chicks grow out. Our Dominique Bantam strain comes from the Mark A. Fields "Unbeatable Beauty" line. I love the coloring of a good Dominique. To increase interest in and to help preserve Dominique large and bantam chickens, the Dominique Club of America was founded in early November, 1973, at Columbus during the Ohio National Show. Since then the Club has grown well and the number of people keeping, breeding and showing Dominiques has increased significantly. Dominique Club activities include publishing the Dominique News four times a year, offering awards for Dominique winners at shows and holding an annual meet, at which friendly competition, fellowship and an exchange of ideas and suggestions are encouraged. The Club also provides a central point for information on sources of Dominiques for new members as well as for breeding stock for those working on their own strains. The Club is active in searching out and assembling historical information on Dominiques. The Club provides tangible recognition, including a Member of the Year Award, for the member making the most notable contribution to Dominiques in that year; and a Dominique Breeders' Hall of Fame, for those who have made a significant contribution toward preserving the Dominique breed. It also offers a Master Breeder Award, which members can earn by successful breeding and showing of large or bantam Dominiques.
