    Just giving a shout-out to if anyone out there has pictures of how Dorkings dress out? They're always rated, by rumor, as an exceptional meat bird, but honestly I've never seen photos of a dead, de-feathered or skinned one. I'm looking to see what all the rave is about. The body appears nice if the bird is, but I'd love to see how worth it it is to get myself some.


    Also, I'd love to know what weights people have gotten? Adult males, females, or even young cockerels. Were they hatchery stock, show stock, or gotten from a breeder of unknown origin?

    Thanks ahead.

    The article is about roast near the town of Dorking, in the UK.

    Somebody did show some Dorking carcasses on the Dorking thread recently, maybe in the last month or so. They were really good looking!
