    Hello to all
    I am new here and hope I"m not asking an old question but I currently have a flock af 11 hens at 15 weeks old consisting of 4 RIR hens and 4 Blk Aust. and 4 Silver Laced Wynd. with 1 roo of all three breeds so my question is what roo would be best to keep of theses allowing cross breeding with 2 of the 3 and keeping 1 breed true. My main objective is egg production .I am leaning towards keeping the RIR Roo but not comepletley sure yet!

    I would choose by the personality of the roo. Any will be fine for breeding.

    [​IMG] Allow them to mature keeping an eye on their behavior. If one becomes agressive to you, cull him. If one becomes abusive to the hens, cull him. In other words keep the one that is the least obnoxious.
