Dominecker Chickens (aka Dominque) are one of the best chickens you could ever hope to raise. When they are first hatched, after they fluff up, they make the cutest little black baby chicks you have ever seen!
Chickens are so easy to incubate too. The Incubators we used were circular and styrofoam. The main thing you need to remember is turn over the eggs periodically. Otherwise, the chicks won’t grow properly, and the egg’s air sacks don’t develop properly. (When they are in a hen’s nest she will naturally roll them around under her.) Just draw an X and 0 on opposite sides of the eggs with a pencil, and make sure you turn them all the way over.
Dominecker’s are like most other chickens. They are great for breeding, great for cooking, and great for egg production. They don’t have anything special that sets them apart, other than their speckled black and white only color. Oh, and don’t forget those cute little black baby chicks!
