    last nite i ask what would be the results of crossing a black australorp rooster with a bard rock hen. i guess i should explain what i looking to accomplish. i looking to increase egg production on a medium flock to the point that egg sale will increase enough to pay for all their food and supplies. i read online that crossing some breeds results in increasd eeg production.(sex link) i have pure bread BA and BR. can someone help me. i also have pure bread RR's and have found out tha crassing RR with BR results in BSL witch are excelant egg producers and good meat birds.
