    First of all, what is the rooster? Secondly, what will I get if I hatch the eggs that result in the cross between these two?

    With my chickies!
    The roo looks like a barred plymouth rock to me, but I'm definitely not an expert!

    I'm thinking the rooster might be a black sex link? Not sure. He's not quite as barred as the barred rock cockerels I've had before.

    The Rooster looks like a Black Sex Link, and the hen looks like a RIR. I honestly don't know what their offspring would look like [​IMG]

    I believe your bls roo will give 50/50 barred or partially barred chicks. The babies will probably be nice layers or eating birds. What's your plan for any roosters you hatch out?

    Roosters would go to the table.
