Quote: Silkies originate from the Himalayan region of China, and are mentioned in Chinese myth/legend and writings from over a thousand years ago. Dorkings were mentioned in Roman writings over a thousand years ago. While the written history of the dorking is considerably longer, the geographic distances apart tell me that they are unlikely to be related simply becuase they share a trait. I don;t know about the other breeds' histories
