I am getting a barred rock rooster, what should I cross him with to make something cool. I still want large eggs. I plan on crossing him with buff orpingtons. Should I try white ones too? Whatcha think? I really like the gold Marans but those prices I'd just sob if I lost one. (hence the cross I want to do getting that checked look) I have an owl and I am changing my whole coup because he makes me nervous and he's hit us 2x. I don't want that again. I also want blue Orpingtons but those prices too makes me sad. I don't show I just love my chickens of many colors frolicking in the grass. Thanks!
