    Donnavee -- my hens all squat when I reach toward them also. Such a nice breed to have around the yard! And beautiful to boot. I can't wait till mine become the "small dog" size they are known for.

    Thanks everyone. There are a ton more pics on the website, and I wrote about a really cute solo Dorking chick and his new Silkie friends. Feel free to take a look and join if you like the stories :)

    They are beautiful! I have a 1 yr old Silver Gray Dorking hen - Grace - and she is the sweetest big ole girl ever. In fact, I cannot herd her anywhere as she just squats down and I have to pick her up and place her in the desired location.
