Ok I asked a few people about this on different threads but no one really knew what would be my best choices. I plan to have a genetically diversified flock, I don't want pure breeds, I do not plan to show or do anything with them except raise them for eggs and meat. So I ordered 5 each of these breeds, BO SS EE Delawares WR WW SLW GLW BR and I picked up 3 BSL hens from TSC to replace my DOA's I want to keep the best roosters that will give me egg layers and meat roo's/spent hens to cull for food, but I also like pretty colorful chickens. of the breeds that are related as in 1 hen to 4 roo's in the straight run order sisters/brothers there is only 1 BO, 1 BR hen, 1 white wyandotte hen and only 1 EE hen. The 3 roosters I won't keep are the White rocks they are meanies. and 1 0f my GLW is crippled since 2 weeks old being jumped on by the others, and the other GLW is a rather poor excuse of a rooster, I thought I would keep the 2 EE roo's but I'm not sure what kinda crosses I'll get with the other hens breeds. as far as great layers and meat? so I just can't decide what would be best. What roosters would you keep, I have enough hens 16, to keep 2 roo's.
