In the Brooder
- Jan 19, 2021
I have 10 black australorp pullets which will be laying by spring. I am thinking of breeding them to a black sexlink rooster. I know the black sexlink rooster is single barred and will pass the barring gene to half of his offspring. I was thinking of crossing the resulting barred offspring together to get a true barred male and barred females. My question is would this make a good duel purpose chicken as far as eggs meat and maybe broodiness?
