    Thanks, they are sweet hearts. I will hatch me some more for layers later. RIR have to be the best layers. I love my reds

    Dutchman you need one. I have heard a lot of people talke about mean RIR roos, but it must be the genetics. I have never had one that offered to flog. The only large Roos I ever had a problem with was Cuckoo Marans. They were gorgeous but I had to watch my back. I obviiously didn't keep them.
    I got eggs from a Master Breeder at a Fl show last Jan and hatched the Rosecomb. Big Red Jr is out of a Big Roo I retired.
