    Those are both good, hardy, dependable breeds that will give you lots of nice, large brown eggs. I don't know if you have any roosters or not among your RIRs, nor how you feel about hybrids, but if you cross a RIR rooster with a Barred Rock hen, you will get Black Sex Link offspring that can be sexed at hatching by color (male chicks will be black with a white spot on top of their heads, female chicks will be solid black). BSLs are egg laying machines, outlaying either parent breed. It's one of the interesting quirks of hybridization.
