Hi there! We have 4 future laying hens, 2 Buff Orpingtons and 2 Barred Rocks. I would like to put a rooster in with them. What breed would you guys suggest? I heard that you can know the sex of the chicks from Barred Rock hens crossed with a Rhode Island Red rooster. What would an Orpington/RIR cross look like? Does anyone have any pictures of that cross? Do you like the RIR/Barred Rock and Orp/RIR crosses? The chicks will be dual purpose. Any other rooster suggestions?
