    if you were getting a rooster and 8 or so hens for ur family for eggs/meat...

    which one of these 2 would you pick to have: buff orps & speckled sussex OR barred rock/partridge rock?
  2. Quote:I would pick the Barred Rock/Partridge Rock. They are a very good dual purpose bird.

    I'm goinna mix it up and say Buff Orps and Barred Rock. They are great dual purpose breeds and non agressive!

    I would pick the sussex and the rocks. I prefer their temperaments, though the rocks are more prolific layers.
