I have Silkies and Easter Eggers right now, but I am thinking of adding another chicken for eggs and meat. I am going to be keeping them with my EE's and planning on having the hens breed with the EE Roo for offspring only to be used for eggs and meat. I want to see if any of you have bred any of the following with EE's. Rhode Island Red Barred Plymonth Rock Wyandotte Which would be best for meat and egg production? Do you know if any combination with EE's is fatal or sterile? The only reason I'm keeping them with the EE's is that I don't want another Roo for reproduction and I don't want to have to build another pen. The pen in plenty big enough for at least 10 more birds. PLEASE let me know your experience and if you have any pictures, please post!
