    Extremely rare (and extremely tasty) meat birds. Dorkings are colorful chickens that pack a lot of meat-very stocky. These are heritage chickens so they take about 5 months to mature. Super nice too if you just want a chicken! Lays pretty well, medium size cream color eggs.

    Dorkings are a very very rare bird and a very very old breed. Dorkings were mentioned in writings as ancient as the time of Julius Caesar. The Romans brought them to England when they took that country over and the Dorking really caught on there, especially in the town of-did you guess?-Dorking. Hence the name. But Dorkings aren't just a special breed because they're ancient and as rare as they are old. They're special because they're also a fabulously tasty breed. In a taste test, the Dorking won first place over many other breeds including the Rhode Island Red and Cornish X who tied for second. Dorkings are famous for their moist breast meat and the texture of the breast and thigh meat. One blogger who attended the Chicken Choosing taste test stated "This bird is known for its fine-textured, very white meat. It is also known to be docile, calm and adaptable. They are good foragers and would make a fine addition to most backyard or farmstead flocks."

    I actually have a few questions. The male in the picture looks to be rosecombed, is that correct? If so, is the whole flock RC? When you say the lay pretty well, is that like 3-4 per week?

    It's about half and half rose comb and single comb. They lay about 5 eggs a week-medium sized cream and beige eggs.
