Nice! I've always been intrigued by Dorkings. My dad had one in the past. This rooster liked to roam around on the ground in the dark, while the rest were on the roost.

I am looking forward to getting my Red Dorking chicks frim Dick Horstman around mid April.
There is a gal in florida with a nice line of Red Dorkings....she actually has several varieties of Dorkings but I'm sure Dick Horstman has some really nice ones!!!:)

Hi

I have been looking for information on Dick Horstmans Red Dorkings. So far this is what I have found. Dick Horstman got his Red Dorking stock from Superior Farm. Superior got their stock from Gene Patterson. I talked to Gene Pattetson and he told me he was a breeder of the Dorkings for over 30 years and during that time he got his stock from Craig Russell, Jeannie Peters, Leonard Offutt and several others. If anyone has more information on this please post it.

Thank You dorking74

Here is a video of my Red Dorking breeding pen. I plan in the next couple of years to build 4 more like this one.

I am very disappointed to say that I will not be getting the Red Dorking from Dick Horstman. But I am very happy to be getting another one of his high quality breeds the Silver Penciled Rocks.
