    I have 20 ISA browns and next spring I am going to incubate some of their eggs. What I am wanting to know what kind of rooster should I use to get more hens with good egg production?

    Leghorn and Sex Link cocks would both be good choices to keep production up. Runner ups would include production Barred Rocks, Naked Necks, and New Hampshires. Rhode Island Reds would also likely produce good egg layers, but I would suggest avoiding those as the cocks can have a real mean streak. I personally love Black Sex Link cocks, they are quite pretty with a great temperament.
