    I'm looking for 3 or 4 dorking pullets. Does anyone plan on having a few they'd be willing to part with. They would have a good home in Upstate NY and SE CT. Hard to find a place willing to sell less than 2 1/2 dozen.

    Try checking with the Society for the Preservation of Poultry Antiquities...because the Dorkings are old and rare--there are some breeders who may be able to help you out or at least direct you to someone who may have chicks/eggs in the spring

    Blackdiamondguestranch.com - She has dorkings, she only sells eggs. Live bird shipping where she lives is just too prohibitive but many people who have gotten her eggs are delighted.

    I am planning a spring chick order and I know Murray McMurray hatchery will sell baby dorking pullets at 4.60 apiece and you can get as few as you want, as long as your total order is 25 chicks. Now if you want to go in on this with me I live in SE CT and would be happy to include you.
