We are neweggs at this. Are getting our shipment of baby chicks on March 23rd. No roo this year probably, but we may introduce 1 or 2 next year (15 chicks, if they all survive by next year...). We will have: 5 EE's 2 Columbian Wyandottes 2 Buff Orpintons 2 Barred Rock 1 RIR 1 Golden Campine 1 Golden Laced Wyandotte 1 unknown I was thinking of getting an EE roo when we do, so that at least the EE eggs, which will hopefully be colored, will be EE's and we can sell the chicks as EE's instead of some unknown cross (yes, I know that EE's are crosses too). What about the other hens? Will any of the babies be potential colored egg-layers since their dad will be a EE? Would you suggest a different breed of roo? Thanks!
