    I will have a mix of Orpingtons, NHR, GLW and Jersey Giants.
    I also have some Freedom Rangers and am thinking of keeping a couple of hens.

    I am wondering since I already have the Freedom Rangers would it make much of a difference if I kept a roo also or would it make a big difference if I just find me a nice Dark Cornish?

    What do you think??

    Thank you,
    I had a feeling that might be what you'd say. [​IMG]
