    Hi. I've been given 2 dorkings and was told they're 2 weeks old. I just wanted some opinions as we've already got 2 sex links that I know are 2 weeks but are smaller and have less feathers. Can anyone have a guess of gender yet or too young? [​IMG]

    I thought that would be the case. I'm interested in how old they are though. I'm not familiar with dorkings.

    I'd say 3 or 4 weeks, but they could be even older. :)

    I apologize as well, I'm not very familiar with the Dorking breed, but I do know they should have 5 toes, so check and see if your chicks do.

    Yep they do. I didn't realise until my son said they had too many feet (he obviously meant toes). I have only had the standard sex links so its nice having a different looking bird
