    I have a barred rock roo and my hens are buff ops and sex links. I am looking to hatch out some babies to have more layers in my flock. Would this be a good combination?????
  2. Well they would be mixed breed chickens, but those are all egg-layer type chickens, so I suppose if any pullets hatched then they would be great brown layers [​IMG]

    Not sure about the barred rock x sexlink but with the barred rock on buff orpingtons you should get buff barred.

    OO! I'd say go for it. All those are great laying breeds, and you'd get some gorgeous buff barreds, which I think are one of the prettiest colors ever!
