    hi weimarmama checked a bit of your blog, see you like auto sex hens,my dorkings are like that.the hens have a large brown spot on there head roos only a thin streak.not man made this breed came to england with the romans,not a great egg layer but they say a great table bird. there not to many about these days, breeding is getting an unrelated pair more dificult.cheers branksy.

    Yep, those autosexing breeds are some of my faves - very proud of my new Rhodebars :love. Dorkings sound lovely, I may have to think about adding them next year ;)
