A review of American Standard Dominiques

The American Dominique was the first breed to be recognized by the American Poultry Association, in 1873.
The original breed has been hybridized or neglected in the breeders' pursuit for improved egg and meat production.
 In their original form, these handsome, dual purpose chickens lay medium to large brown eggs, and are good meat birds.
Their friendly disposition, incubating talents and free-ranging abilities, endear the breed to more & more people each year.
