    My nabor has a road island rooster but says he is too loud and they are about to get rid of it. I have 8 chickens right now and becase of some reasnt deaths do to predators i have room in my coop for about 4 more. The only thing is im having trouble desiding which of my chickens to breed it with. I have the following:
    1- production red
    1- speckled sussex
    1- silver laced polish
    2- partrige rocks
    1- leghorn and
    1- black sexlinked
    Hope you can help me
    Thanks
     
  2. I would think you could breed him with all except the polish and raise yourself some good mixed breed laying hens & fryers

    okay well the rooster just about killed my leghorn witch had part of its comb missing and a blood face by the time i could get him off of her so i think im mating him with the production red and the black sex linked
