    i was looking for a barred rock roo to mate with my nh red hens because according to sand hill hatchery if you mate them u get deleware pullets. i was wondering if a dominuqe roo would do the same.

    You wouldn't get delwares. you will get barred with red on them.

    A barred Rock Rooster has a full sized comb. Very tall and beautifull. A dominique Roo, will have the pea comb, or rose comb. Im not sure as for breeding it would make much of a difference....other than the comb.

    You need to have a NH red MALE breeding a Barred Rock or a Dominique female in order to get sex-links.
