    So me and my daughter are raising 3 barred rock 1 of em is a rooster and 2 black Australorp hens. So far so good. I've read alot on this site and many others over the last 8 months or so. Our austrlops are new this week actually and what I've heard about the barred rock is true bossy bossy girls. But anyway happy to be on here hope I meet some good folks. Kurt

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    A word of advice, you will want to get a few more hens. Each rooster (especially youngsters just coming into their own) require a bare minimum of 5-6 but preferably 8-10 hens, to prevent overmating.
