    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.

    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.

    How sweet! They are beautiful! I used to have some White Dorkings but they were taken by a fox, unfortunately.

    Thanks everyone. I have 5 of the silver grey cockerals growing out, and they are like living yard art against the green grass. The pullets that are coming in to lay have bright red combs, and a couple are filling into fat little hens laying tiny pullet eggs. I sort of like that they lay white eggs :)
