    I have to many roosters, 3 or 4 need to go. I have four Rhode Island Red hens, three Buff Orpington hens, one Barred Rock hen and one Easter Egger Hen. I would like some neat looking chicks one day so which rooster do I keep, I have two Barred Rocks, and three Easter Egger Roosters. the easter Eggers are mostly white with the greenish tails. One is all off white. Will the Barred Rocks and the Hens I have make good looking chickens or will the Easter Eggers be more colorful?

    Quote:The EEs would give you a more colorful flock. With Barred Roosters, no matter what breeds of hens you have ( for the most part), you will get mostly barred chicks.
