I chose RIR because although I like the feathering on BRs and I think they're really pretty, I've never owned any so I don't know their general personality and behavior...I have, however, a RIR rooster and although he can be a bit aggressive sometimes, he is a sweet rooster.
I chose BR I love the coloring and my BR's are way nicer and much more calm then my RIR
BRs have a much better personality in my opinion. Not agressive at all. If you are only getting pullets though that isn't as much of an issue.
Barred Rocks are awesome. I don't care for hatchery RIR's, but if you can get a hold of some heritage RIR, you'll be very pleased!
RIR..I love that dark brownish/auburn color.
My BRs are way more calm and friendly than the RIRs. They are too young to lay yet, but as far as personality I vote BR all the way!
Barred rocks!!! My barred rocks never attacked me the way a RIR rooster did!
My Rhode Island Red is very sweet. She is also my best egg layer. She lays every day!
I think RIR are very pretty. However my BR hens are much more friendly. I had a very mean BR roo though, but he was so handsome.
