We are studying the kind of chickens we are going to get. There is a hatchery very near us. They hatch Barred Plymouth Rocks every Wednesday. I kinda like that chicken for sentimental reasons. But I don't see much about them in the pictures and posts on here. We live in Kentucky. We get very hot summers and lately fairly mild winters, but it can get very cold in January. We will have a nice coop by spring and hope to have a completely enclosed run for them. They will not free range in our yard (we have flower gardens and vegetable gardens and a Jack Russell. What do you think of Barred Plymouth Rocks? And how many eggs can we expect from them?
