    One of my barred rock hens has gone broody and is sitting on a dozen eggs provided by herself and all my other hens. My rooster is a SLW my other hens are SLW, Mottled Java, RIR, Buff Orpington, and another BR. Any ideas of what the offspring may look like, or does anyone have pics of some of the same pairings?

    No I don"t have any idea, but the interesting thing about this is that I have barred rocks for about 4 years now and only 1 has ever gone broody. She did hatch out 14 of the 15 eggs she sat on. Good luck!

    Thank you, this is the second time this summer that this hen has gone broody. The first time I didn't have a rooster so there was no point to letting her have the eggs.
