Whenever I owned chickens I had a few Dominiques. They have a unique feather coloring of grey and black. Their egg production rate is fairly high and reliable.
Dominiques have a unique personality, they tend to keep to themselves. Usually chickens will interact with each other and with their owner, but Dominiques mind their own business.
If you are looking for laying hens, I would highly recommend Dominiques. They are reliable, calm and easy to take care of. I would not suggest them as pets, because of their standoffish personality.
