I have a barred rock rooster (Big Boy) that is huge, escapes all the time with his harem in tow, and is my number #1 favorite. It's getting close to that time when I need to figure out which roo's need to go and which ones stay. I've got 3 buff orpington hens, 6 barred rock hens, 4 mean orpington roo's, my lovely big boy and his brother scrapper (they don't get along...otherside of fence sort of feud). Genetically, which ones should I spare the chopping block? If I keep big boy and his brother for chick production, what will the result be with a buff orpington hen? Not that interested in keeping the buff line true, much prefer the barred intellegence.
