    Anyone else breeding dual purpose sex links?

    We are trying our large Heritage Rhode Island Red rooster over Silver Gray Dorking hens. We'd hoped for some busty larger birds - roosters who are worth eating and hens worth selling for egg laying. We have not grown them out to slaughter yet but I must say everything else so far is going remarkably well...
