Hi everybody. I just joined the community this morning. I've kept leghorns in the past but on March 4th I'll be receiving 6 Rhode Island Reds. We used to keep them when my family lived in Ohio. Curious to see how they'll do here in Haiti. Anyone else keeping RIRs in hot climates? Also, it's hard to get a RIR rooster here (they just don't sell them) so I was wondering if they tend to keep their laying characteristics when crossbred. I'll probably be experimenting quite a bit here since its hard to put a finger on some of the local breeds.
