    What's the role of the rooster? What breeds of hens? Is it important to have an attractive unique looking rooster?

    Legbars are blue eggers...but kind of trendy, so can be expensive...there sex linked so you can get a rooster chick cheaper.

    I agree an EE would make for interesting babies....who knows which genes he will carry.
