I would like to order chicks from McMurray to start a flock of barred rocks in the spring. My plan is to select the best rooster and put the others in a stew pot or sell them. I have two questions: 1. Does anybody have experience with the quality of the barred rocks from McMurray? I'm looking for a true dual purpose - meat and eggs. 2. How long can I keep several roosters around in the same flock before choosing the one to keep? I would like to keep them long enough to be sure I'm choosing the one with the best personality and a good body type but I don't want to deal with fighting. Any advice is welcome.
