    What breed of chicken?

    I have my hobby flock (pets) that my granddaughter and I share-- Stewie the rooster, 4 black sexlink hens, 2 production red hens, 1 light brahman hen.

    Then I have my flock- not pets. Currently 9 barred rock hens, with 2 rhode island red roosters. Plus 24- 5 week old velociraptor rhode island reds in the brooder. Will be setting 40 to 50 eggs in my incubator mid month. Plan is to expand flock to around 50 adult birds.
