    After reading about chicken breeds on Henderson's & My Pet Chicken, my 9 year old asked me to find him some Dorkings. After looking for awhile & easily finding most of the other breeds we want, I told him that Dorkings are really hard to find. He said, "Of course they are Mom, they're practically endangered & that's why I want them." Apparently, our little eco-boy has decided to Save the Dorkings! [​IMG] He wants to show & breed them & I'm very proud of him.

    Can anyone help us out? Red is his favorite, but any color would be fine. We're not in a mad hurry, I don't have much incubator space left. [​IMG]

    Thanks!!

    Jeanne has beautiful Dorkings and sells hatching eggs. Probably not for awhile tho as we have tons of snow right now.

    I do... I have Silver Grey Dorking eggs, and I have 12+ available now, even... PM me if you're interested. [​IMG]

    I actually talked to Jeanne today... she was disgusted by the fact that we reached 40°F today here in AK, and it was only 8°F there with a ton of snow. [​IMG] It feels like spring here!
