    On this property, Plymouth Rocks need to be kept under control. We just can't seem to decide which one to improve on and focus on. I'm gonna run through the rocks that are available for us to keep with pictures and see the highest vote. Please vote according to the quality of the birds pictured, not whether you like the variety or not. These aren't birds on my property, they're my suppliers birds

    Buff Rocks

    The Silver Penciled Plymouth Rocks seem to have the best coloring and body type. The Columbian Plymouth Rocks have good type but that hen has some dark specks on her back aside from the specks she looks perfect.

    Was thinking the same thing. Those are also probably the largest of them as well

    Love the columbians, I actually like
    The penciling on them. Without it they’d look identical to light sussex...

    I LOVE the silver pencilled Rocks! The Columbian rocks would be my second choice!

    Yea, the only difference would be shape and shank color. The coloring is actually genetically the same thing as the coloring on Light Sussex
    They are great birds, eh? It's gonna be so hard to choose just one for me

    I’m planning on breeding lemon pyle, blue buff columbian and partridge brahmas next year, my goal is to hatch and sell 60 chickens. First time so I don’t want to have too many running around.
