    I have two RIR/BO cross pullets and I was wondering what kind of egg layer they will be.

    I don't know but I bet they will be great layers. My RIR and my BO are some of my best layers.

    ETA: I accidentally put BR instead of BO.

    They should be as good as the stock they came from, maybe a little better because of hybrid vigor.

    Thanks for the info. I hope they are better layers than their BO mom. I was only getting a couple of eggs a day from Five BO's. They were very nice show quality, though. I sold all my BO's after these babies hatched out.
