Hi, I am planning to eventually get a rooster, possibly next winter, and am trying to choose a breed. I want a rooster of a breed that would give 6-7 eggs a week, and a decently large bird (think delaware). I would also like the breed to be docile. The reason why I am not sure which breed to chose is because I like a lot of diversity in chickens, ans would like the offsprings to be diverse as well. My hens are all mixes, but for example, one breeder from whom I've purchased many hatching eggs has a plymouth rock rooster and different breeds of hens. All the chicks look somewhat like a plymouth rock. I don't know much about chicken genetics, so I don't know if a Delaware rooster would give delaware-looking offsprings even if crossed with mixed hens. Most of my current hens come from a cross between a Delaware rooster (that wasn't pure. He had some brown patches) and red sexlinks. The offspring were various colours - some looked like delawares, others were white with brown patches, others were darker brown with some black, and some were white and a peach colour. I like being able to identify every chicken, so would a pure Delaware rooster work for this, or would the white gene dominate the others? What other breeds would you guys recommend? Thanks!
