Out of about 70 Dominique cockerels this year I have kept back 8 and although I liked them a month ago they are kind of in the gangly teenager stage right now and I am trying hard not to look too close at them until they grow out a bit.
This guy keeps catching my eye and although his comb is not ideal and he isnt done growing he does have a great shape and a certain style and sparkle to him!

Oh geeze, girl!! Look at those boys. You sure have been working hard and I see some very nice looking fellows, particularly the one in the centre that you wanted us to look at. Impressive!! Have a most beautiful day, CynthiaM.

thanks guys, yes he is a nice one, maybe a little on the light side but I do want a lighter, more agile bird in the Doms compared to other breeds in the american class. I think it would be pretty hard to win the american class with Doms just because of their lightness but I still would love to!
Here is another guy who is shorter and stockier and his tail isnt fully grown yet but he is also nice although slightly different type.

Yes Cynthia, it is so much easier now I have focused on one breed (well two but that breed is not technically mine, although I do raise and care for them right now!)
Wish I had been able to do that from the start but first we had to dip and dabble and figure out which breed we liked best!
