Silver Grey Dorkings - Large 

 

Silver Grey is the most popular of the five Dorking colours. We have been breeding Silver Greys for several years, and have worked hard to improve the qulaity of the stock we keep. We have over the last few years bought stock from the top breeders to breed birds true to the breed standard in type, weight and colour.

Silver Grey - Bantams

 

The bantam variety is very rare, and it has taken us a long time to find foundation stock. Eventually, we were able to purchase some hatching eggs and a cockeral from Nicola Bramley. We have kept a quad for breeding in 2021. As the variety has such a small gene pool, we will be using some of our large fowl to improve type and colour. This variety will take some time to improve quality, but these birds are healthy, attarctive birds that lay a good sized egg.
