Pros: cute people lovers, get along well with other breeds
Cons: prone to illness
we had a barred rock named Pecky, we got her on accident at dells! we thought we were getting 3 black sex links but we ended up with 2 sex links and a barred rock, she was very nice and would almost beg you to pick her up, however she continuously was getting a new illness every summer, she was still a good layer and very pretty to look at. i am sorry to say she died last year from mareks disease luckily it did not have time to spread to the rest of the flock. over all they are very goodhearted birds.
