    I would like to know if anyone has had any experiance with australorp x Barred rock hybrids?
    I understand they would produce (in theory) sexlink chicks, that would be a plus for me, but not needed.
    I am thinking more along Year round egg production and fryer/roaster results. What I have read about egg production from black sexlink hybrids, and the australorps egg production background, seems they would be egg machines year round with a good light suppliment.

    If you have first hand knowledge Wonderful [​IMG] , if you have more background in breeding hybrids than me(easy enough,lol) thats good too.
