    I would like to start transitioning our laying flock to a dual purpose flock.

    Please help me decide between Black Copper Marans or Barred or Plymouth Rocks?

    I love the egg coloring of the Marans... Does anyone know which tastes better.

    The plan is in one coop the blue/black Amerecaunas, laying birds in the second and possibly meat birds, turkeys or ducks in the third.

    I can say that BPRs make good dual purpose birds -- so there is one vote for them. :O)
