    Got 25 straight run silver grey dorkings from Murray Mcmurray this Spring- Plus Dino, the free blue Andalusian cockerel who hitched a ride with the Dorks.

    23 Dorkings + Dino made it to adulthood. Going to reduce from 11 cockerels to 2 or 3 for wintering over- But only 2 of them are obvious culls, so I'm waffling and wondering how to decide who goes where?

    The culls will go into a batch of chicken mole when I can face the required process. But for the 6 or 7 others- Anyone want to do a cockeral swapp for other Dorking bloodlines?

    As for Dino- he's got a name. And it's hard to eat someone you know by name...

    (edit)

    Deleted image & video from photobucket, resent them, pasted in new links... And they work for me again.



    What the heck?

    The photo & video links worked yesterday- I haven't exceeded my bandwidth with the free Photobucket account... But the links are not working. Can anyone else see the picture and/or the video I linked in the original post?
