I am expanding my flock this spring. I have a bantam cochin roo with a mix of hens (2 buff orpingtons, 2 black astrolorps, 2 rhode island reds, 1 barred rock and 2 ameraucanas. My issue is, I don't want all of the chicks to be bantam. I am new to chicken keeping, so if my information is wrong or off, don't mind me, I'm still learning. Id like to increase the chances of having a cochin hen go broody, so I'm incubating my hens eggs, and I'm getting some easter egger eggs to incubate as well. The Easter Egger hens will lay blue eggs, but I'd also like to have a brown egg laying pair for chicks. Does anyone have an opinion about what rooster I should try to hatch that matches the hens I already have? I like the temperament best of the orpingtons and barred rock. Does anyone have an opinion on if its best to keep a barred rock roo or an orpington? Thanks!
