    I have my RIR rooster reggie that is a well behaved rooster and I want to get some more hens that will give me a good meat bird, I was thinking about barred rocks or Columbian Rocks what would be a good cross for meat? I am aming for a good 4-5 lb dressed rooster at about 13-14 weeks. I was thinking of pure cornish hens or somthing simular what do you suggest? thanks
