    Those silver chickens are babes! Strangely enough, I've never had either. My father-in-law loves RIRs, though. Good luck picking, and count this as a non-vote. Hahaha

    if you curently have a flock of Barred Rocks, and if you happened to get a RIR, you could have sex linked chicks....juss saying....

    otherwise, I'd vote for the SLW's very pretty birds....

    but then again, you already have some black and white birds, you might want some color diversity in your flock, I'd go with the RIR's.
