    Found the 22 wk old Barred Rock hens on Craigslist and ended up getting two. One has just started laying and the other hasn't. I didn't have a way to keep them separated from my 5 RIR's overnight so I hope they'll be ok.

    I LOVE barred rocks!! Mine are so friendly. I know my RIR's like to peck at the combs of my rocks, can't seem to get them to stop. Good Luck!
