    White rocks will be comperable with your RIR experience if they are relatively good lines. You may find out they are better cold weather layers than the RIR.

    Rocks may be closer to 24 weeks when they start laying.

    We have five White Rocks and they're the largest of the chick-birds in our coop. Born April 24, I guess they're officially one month old today.

    Since we bought straight run, I've not yet determined how many are pullets.
