The Dorking Chicken is an ancient Chicken breed that dates back to the Roman occupation of Britain, when they were imported by the Roman conquerors. Dorking Chickens are easily identified because they have 5 toes, instead of the more normal 4 on other chicken breeds.


On average, a Dorking Chicken Rooster will weigh 8 to 10 pounds (3.63 kg to 4.54 kg) and a Dorking Chicken Hen will weigh 7 to 8 pounds (3.18 kg to 3.63 kg).
