    I need help!!! I ordered my first 25 chicks consisting of Rhode Island Reds and Dominiques last week. I went this week to my local tractor supply store to buy a few chicks and all they had left were Plymouth Rock. My question is can I cross the Plymouth Rock hens with the Rhode Island Red or the Dominique roosters that I ordered and what would they be if I did?? Im very new at raising chickens but my children and I are already falling in love with this new hobby and cant wait to learn more. Any info would help.....Thanks in advance!!!!!

    Put a RIR roo over a Barred Rock hen and you'll get black sex links!

    Crossing RIR over Dominiques should do the same.
