    Added 3 Barred Rock hens to my crew with the great idea that they'd be for eggs and for producing future "meals". Well, forgot we'd need a rooster around! Maybe someone nearby has, or knows someone who has, a Barred Rock rooster that needs a good home!!

    I'm in Starke. Go to Jax and Gainesville often and farther sometimes!!

    I know what you mean about "can't have just one"! Have 1 RIR mix rooster, 2 RIR hens, 3 Barred Rock hens, 4 RIR/Sebright hens that came from my chickens and were part of 9 that we incubated. (I have video of chicks hatching!!) Favorites overall are a pair of Black Sumatras that were part of 4h project.

    I'm in Jax, near Whitehouse/Cecil, my neighbor has Barred Rocks, (she has TONS of all kinds of chickens, except Silkies, lol) I wouldn't be suprised if she has a roo.

    If you are still looking, private message me and I'll get you her number.
