I am going to order some baby ducks (first experience!) from Ideal this week, for my girls birthday. Because I am obsessed with chickens and 40 apparently is not enough, I have to order some (MORE) chicks as well (it's an illness, I swear). I do not have any Barred Rocks currently and have been wanting some. I have three Easter Egger hens and love them. I want to raise one of the two breeds. We had to kill my RIR rooster because he was very aggressive so I won't be raising that breed. I do have an Ameraucana rooster, but he is 9 months old now and hasn't crowed once or shown any interest in the hens so I'm guessing he is a dud. Which stinks. So I guess I won't be raising Ameraucanas. My only standard rooster (though he's just 4 months old) that I have is an Exchequer Leghorn (not that that matters). What I want to know is should I raise EEs or Barred Rocks? Or both? Or neither? Which breed would sell better and which rooster would be the least aggressive (typically) or is their no such thing? Thanks!!
