    What sized hens do they grow to be? What do they lay like? Are they okay around people? Do you have either?
    I bought one of each today :) Without a clue about either breed haha, I did notice the Black Rock looks very close to my Barneldver though, Which I like :)

    I have a black rock shes not at all aggressive but she can be quite shy she will happily follow me around the garden but does not want to be touched :( this might be because I bought her at point of lay instead of as a chick , how old is yours ?.shes is an excellent layer giving an egg almost every day ,her eggs are a light creamy brown colour and black rocks are a hardy breed so they are good for cold weather.
