I’m drafting up my spring chick order (I know, super early but I can’t help myself; I love doing my research ) and keep going back and forth on these two breeds. Which is the better layer and more friendly of the two? I’m essentially looking for an excellent layer that can be processed once done laying. As a side note I’m considering these breeds in order to cross with the RIR cockerels I’m planning on ordering - to raise for sex link chicks down the road. Has anyone had both breeds? What are your thoughts/and or/experiences? Is there another breed I should consider for my purposes? I’m nearly 100% sure I’m ordering from McMurray hatchery so the breed recommended would have to come from what they have to offer. Thank you in advance!
