Dorking Chickens

Silver Gray (Grey) Dorking Chick


Silver Gray (Grey) Dorking Hen


Colored Dorking Rooster

Dorkings are an ancient breed, perhaps having been introduced into England by the Romans. The most common color for Dorkings is silver gray (grey), but white, red, and a colored variety also exist. Dorkings tend to be delicate and aren't always hardy, especially in heat, but do well in cooler climates. Dorking chickens are very docile and friendly and lay medium size white eggs. Dorkings also have a bantam (miniature) counterpart.
