    Quote:What variety of Dorkings are you looking for? The Silver Grey's are easier than any other to find. Several large hatcheries sell them. The rarer Red Dorkings are next to impossible to find. I finally found some hatching eggs on ebay and I have them in my incubator now. Here's hoping I get at least a 50% hatch rate. [​IMG]

    I don't have a color preference. I am hoping to find some locally. I called some hatcheries and they didnt have any. Maybe they are back in stock.

    Do you have any?

    Quote:Yep, and as I mentioned before I have more on the way. Trying to build up a flock of Red and Silver Grey Dorkings. Did you contact McMurray? I know they have had the Silver Grey in the past.

    Thanks for the link Sue NH but I am hoping to find a local breeder.

    Let me know how your hatch goes skennedy. Maybe I will go ahead and order some.

    McMurray is sold out of dorkings at the moment.
