So I originally had some Red Rangers on order from S & G Poultry. But the unexpected shipping costs had me cancel me order and order the Colored Rangers from JM. When working with S & G I told them my end goal was to breed and hatch out my own meat crosses. I was going to try crossing the Red Ranger Roo with a small batch of 6 - 10 of my hens. they said that because I wanted to do this the Red Ranger Roo would work great. So now that I ordered the Colored Rangers are the hens good or somewhat good layers? Can I just breed out my own Colored Rangers if I keep a roo and 10 hens? Or should I just keep a roo and breed with my original hens I was thinking of? 2-Speckled Sussex, 2-Buckeye, 2-Austrolaps and may be 4-RIR. Any thoughts on this?
