Questions & Answers
Are these chicks available? Looking for dorkings
They are currently sold out for the season.
I recently moved into a home with nearly 1/4 acre of yard and have started setting up to raise chickens for eggs next spring. I am most interested in the Dorking breed and was curious if you have a waiting list for your spring chicks. Your reviews are wonderful, and this seems to be the perfect breed for my family. Thanks.
We don't have a waiting list. But you can pre order your chicks for next spring. We will start taking orders in November for our 2016 hatching season.
