Colour : Silver
Nice good size white oval eggs
This ancient breed was brought to England by the Romans.
A heavy bird with a large, square frame, can be found in both single or rose comb, and all have an extra toe, making them one of very few breeds which have five toes.
They come in many colour varieties, but most commonly found in NZ are the Silver Grey Dorking, with single combs.
Known as a meat breed of premium breast meat, roosters take awhile to mature but once they get there, they are of a magnificent stature & are totally different in their looks to their plainer female counterparts!
The Silver Dorking hens are good layers, of chalky white, oval shaped eggs - and seldom if ever go broody.
We have been working hard on keeping our Dorking line at show quality type and we hope you will see us at shows when they resume.
