Uninterested but Decent Chicken

I have had a few Dominique chickens and they are both hardy and good layers. In my experience not very broody. But they are also a bit skiddish and more interested in the other chickens then in being a pet. It's nice to add the black and white speckled coloring of this chicken to your flock but don't expect this chicken to be your close friend. They will let you pick them up but aren't to interested in what you're doing.
