    I'm in North Arkansas (Harrison area). I have a bunch of RI red hens, a dominecker hen, and a white rooster. I'm looking for a young rooster, preferably a bit more exotic (or game rooster) to become the sire to a new batch of chicks that hatched in early September.

    One of my RI's got broody so I gathered eggs and let her set on them. I didn't bother to sex them since I'd forget who was what anyway, and I let her free range her chicks with the rest of the flock.

    Apparently my white rooster and my dominecker hen are siblings (got them at the same place) because all of the chicks are either domineckers with white splashes, or white with black specks- not a red one in the bunch!

    I've now got a second generation of chickens, and I eventually want a third, fourth, and so on. But I don't want inbreeding. That said, I need new blood.

    Anyone in my area have what I want?

    Oh no, Benton is way too far away to go. I was hoping someone in Northark had one to swap.
