Silver Gray Dorking Chicks

The Dorking chicken breed was named after the Southern English town of Dorking. They are well known for their very fine-textured and tender white meat. They are also exceptional winter layers and can lay up to 140 medium to large, creamy white eggs per year. Dorkings are calm and adaptable to many settings. They are good foragers and do not scratch the ground as much as other breeds, making them a great backyard chicken. Dorkings are good with children but should not be kept with aggressive breeds. Males are more prone to frostbite than female Dorkings due to their large single comb. Hens are slow to mature and may not begin laying until they are 26 weeks old.

Average weight: roosters 9 lbs., hens 7 lbs.

* Due to the rarity of these chicks, Meyer Hatchery’s order maximum is 10.
