    No pictures, but when I had them, they were lovely birds. Very beautiful and very sweet, docile, gentle birds. They would come when called and you could pick them up any time you wanted to. Since it's an English breed, they were named Jane and Emily. [​IMG]

    I have one and she's awesome. She started laying at 18 1/2 weeks, she lays a little white egg. She let's me pick her up and pet her, she lets me reach underneath her while she's in the nest box. I do have pics but can't post it now their on my other computer. If you search the feathersite for dorking, mine looks just like the standard hen and that website, short legs round body almost looks like a fat pigeon.

    I have red dorkings. They look the same only with red and golden colors where the silver and white lacing is.

    Great birds they don't attack me or anything.

    Here's my silver dorking. She's one of my favorites!!:

    She is very friendly and talkative.

    We had Dorkings this year and they were wonderful! They are lovely birds with a very sweet nature and very beautiful. Ours came from Murray and were wonderful. We sold all of them and kept one, Ofelia. When my roommate moved out she took Ofelia with her and I miss her all the time. I will definitely get another for myself! I promise you will love them.

    Here is Ofelia

    And here they are as babies
