Dominiques (aka old grey hen, Pilgrim foul, Dominic and Dominicker) are the oldest American breed of chicken thought to be brought to New England from the southern parts of England and have been a common breed in New England farms since the 1750s. Our hens are free range, feeding off grass, pill bugs, centipedes and whatever garden or kitchen scraps we have for them. The eggs range in size and shape but tend to be medium and light brown in color. With mechanization, Dominiques were thought to be unproductive and were brought to near extinction.
We pack these in a double carton with additional packing. Please ask for availability if you want more than two dozen. We always give you the freshest our hens have given us.
