Greetings from Heavenly Acres... I'm pleased to be joining you! We have a small but "heavenly" location near the VT border. I love being a chicken farmer! We originally got chickens for "tick control" over ten years ago... We tried several breeds but I had always dreamed of raising Red Dorkings, like they had at Old Sturbridge Village in the 80's and 90's. Four years ago my husband established some contacts for me, and we began our journey... I'm thrilled to report that not only do we have some handsome rooster which are also gentlemanly, but this summer we had five broody hens hatch chicks! What a gift from God! We now have over 25 Red Dorkings and I'd love to help someone else get started with this beautiful, gentle breed... I'd love to hear from you!
