    How about a White Rock? There would be some mighty tasty results, lol.

    ok , I'll take a shot.

    Layer - brown leghorn, light or dark your choice.

    Meat - rock, partridge I think. or maybe sussex( might look kinda ugly, till the feathers come off)

    Overall general purpose/decent looks - gold laced or blue laced red(preferably splash) wyandotte

    Wut do you guys think about a red jungle fowl for the cross (it would be hatchery stock so its not like its pure in the first place, so i wont be contributing to the downfall of the true RJF)
