    Buff Orpingtons are pretty but Partridge Brahmas ..... I am biased.
    Cannot think that I will be able to sell that many chicks.

    Are there any Dorking breeders in South Africa?

    I am a Dorking-breeder in Germany.
    There are only few Dorking-breeder in Germany so there is a problem with inbreeding.
    In August and September we will spend some time in South Africa. I wonder whether it is possible to get some Dorking breeding eggs from South Africa.

    I havent seen any at shows here. I will ask some of the clubs if there are any breeders here. Your best bet honestly will be the UK.

    Oh, I knew a lady breeding them but I heard she moved to Australia, will try find out what she did with her Dorkings and if they are still here, otherwise I haven't heard of any others.

    Dear Helen,
    thanks for your efforts. I look forward to hear from you. Maybe she knows other Dorking-breeders?

    Hey Lino, some breeders have a few project birds up here in where i am, but they are not very good quality. All of them got their starter birds from Holland or the UK.

    Thanks AndyCap. In the meantime I got an answer from the PoultryClubSA. Apparently there are no Dorking breeders left in South Africa :(
    They asked me to bring eggs from Germany.

    I got the same response from fellow members of Show Poultry South Africa.

    Just be aware if you do decide to bring eggs in that they will be quarantined here for ages, it isnt really possible to get eggs into South Africa legally, although a lot of breeders do import them.

    Good luck [​IMG]
