Hi. I've been hoping to get Dorkings for about 4 years to use as my dual purpose/primarily meat goals. I expect a hardy, meaty bird but want the type and color to be correct. I really don't care which color, except it don't want white. I love the Reds. Either comb is fine, maybe a slight preference for straight comb. I recently moved to the southern border of NC and have plenty of space to start breeding. I do need to build some pens and coops. Anybody near me? I'm starting my hunt for chicks, anticipating that I won't get them until next spring. I'm also planning to get an incubator this winter so I could go with hatching eggs.
