Any differences between Barred Plymouth Rocks and White Plymouth Rocks?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I know this is a silly, silly question, but, I'm going to ask it anyway. 

 

Should I expect a Barred Plymouth Rock and a White Plymouth Rock to be the same in everything except color? Should I expect a White Rock to lay just as good as a Barred Rock??

 

Like I said, I know that is probably a silly question, but I've only ever had Barred Rocks, and people just rave about their barred rocks, and I never really hear as much said about White Rocks.

 

I am thinking of adding some White Rocks to my flock so I was just curious what I should expect, or if I should just add more Barred Rocks instead.

 

 

Thanks!

I have both Barred and White Plymouth Rocks and in my experience, other than color, they are essentially the same in temperament and laying ability (not surprising since they are just two color varieties of the same breed).
