About to get our first Chickens. Four or five. A local farm has Rhode Island Red x White Rock Egg Layer pullets (male RIR x Female White Rock). Does anyone have any experience with this cross? I hear they are great, personable, hens. I have read that they lay great for two or three years then drop off. How much do they drop off? With five birds I don't need every one to lay every day but I don't want a bird that will only give me one a week either. I am sure I can find other breeds for sale in my area but I like the look of this small farm and want to support them.
