Meet Dorothy, Rose and Blanche.

 

They are our Silver Grey Dorking hens.

I’ve been told that this particular breed of chicken is quite old. The breed originated in Italy and was introduced to Britain during the Roman conquest.

Wow! What heritage! All of a sudden I feel like they’re coop should be fancied up a bit!

They are lovely hens. Dorothy and Blanche are attached at the hip and Rose likes to wander around doing her own thing.

Soon they will be laying beautiful white eggs, which I can’t wait to eat! We’re hoping to cross the girls with Hei Hei our rooster next season. Can’t wait to see what those sweet baby chicks look like!
