Silver Gray Dorking

Silver Gray Dorking, a five toed bird, has existed in some variation for over 2000. years.  They traveled to the United States with the early settlers.  I have found the rooster to be kind while still protective of the hens.

They are watchful as they free-range.  Hens lay throughout the year and do have a tendency to be broody.  The meat from Silver Gray Dorkings have won taste tests and contests.  I have been given differing thoughts on the best time to harvest for meat.  This will be a learning process for me.

Do you want some for your own?  CG Heartbeats Farm has hatching eggs for sale and will hatch chicks for you.
