    Does anyone know of any differences between the Silver gray dorkings and the Red dorkings other than the color ?

    For each breed of chicken (for example, Dorking, Wyandotte, Sussex) all individuals of that breed have the same body type and characteristics, which is what makes them of that breed.

    The variation in colour should generally be just that: a variation in colour. There are sometimes not-visible differences between colours such as how prolific they are at laying eggs, but that has much to do with how that specific strain has been bred.
