    We have 30 Rhode Island Red laying hens and no Roo.

    Wondering what breed to get, we would love to get some more interesting stock out there,
    but don't know what to breed with them to achieve this.

    Any interesting ideas?

    Are you looking for great layers or dual purpose birds?

    We are more interested in egg production.
