    I have a rooster and a hen that adopted me, from a neighbor who swore they were trained to stay in his yard. LOL. I looked at pics and I think they r dorkings, except not grey - red and brown. Does any one know of another more common breed similar to them

    I had a rooster and hen adopted me. From the pics they look like dorkings except not grey- red and brown(rooster). No tail feathers. Is there a similar more common breed that has the same type markings for both rooster and hen. By the wY they belonged to my ex neighbor who swore they were well trained and would stay in his yard. Been with me for 4 months.

    posting pics would help know for sure what breed they are. u could post in what breed and gender is this and people are more likely to give better answers there

    We'd really need pictures to see. And try to post also in the "What Breed or Gender is This?" section.

    Dorkings do come in red and light brown varieties. They are probably dorkings.

    Photos? Leg colour? Number of toes? Dorkings come in several varieties.
