I have a barred rock rooster and one barred hen. I have had them about a year (I had more, but the neighborhood dog got the other 3 hens when they escaped one day). I ordered some Rhode Island Red chicks (hens) and some Golden laced Wynadot (straight run) from Meyer's today. When they get old enough, I am putting all the hens in with my Barred Roo. I am thinking of keeping a Golden Roo as well. My question, though, is what sort of offspring can I expect from my hens with the Barred roo? Since I will have several hens, do I need to keep on of the Golden roos? Will he be able to live with my Barred roo? Thanks for any help you can give.
