Red Dorking
Back to All Breeds
The dual-purpose Dorking is an ancient breed. Named after a town in Surrey England, Dorkings trace their heritage to early Roman times. There are reports from a Roman agricultural writer describing a square-framed, five-toed short-legged bird” brought to England from Italy in 54 B.C. by some of Julius Caesar’s soldiers. Very early English settlers brought the Dorking to North America and by the mid-19th century it was widespread throughout farms in the eastern United States, particularly in New york. Hens are dependable, year-round layers of large white eggs. TheDorking receives praise for its fine-quality flavorful white meat.
