    Hi, my name is Mary Margaret. I live in Snow Hill, NC. We have an Organic Dairy farm and I want to start a flock of Dorkings, but I am having a hard time locating any. Does anyone have any information on a good contact for getting true dorkings? Thanks.

    Hello,Mary Margaret - I don't know if you're still looking for birds, but we have some beautiful 4 - 6 month pullets and roosters as well as mature hens we'd be happy to set you up with. We hatched our birds from eggs sent from the East Coast and Indiana. We've had Red Dorkings for about 4 years, have some wonderful roosters and we love the breed!

    I think Meyer Hatchery has them (at least the silver variety) unless you are opposed to hatchery birds.
