White Rocks

  1. I have white rocks and many other breeds. How do all of you feel about the white rocks? I really like them but what is the general consensus about this breed?

    I have White Rocks, they are pretty friendly. I really like them. When they are free ranging & I go out they come running to see what I may have for treats or maybe just to visit. They are not as flighty as my White Leghorns.

    As a bonus I'm starting to get very large eggs, weighing 2.8 oz. & they have been double yolkers.

    They are listed as a Dual Purpose breed, which suits our purposes.

    We will be getting more of these this spring, as well as some more White Leghorns & maybe some Rhode Island Reds.

    I vote 'Yea!' for White Rocks!

    Quote:Love them. They are just about to start laying, they are friendly, pretty, and have been really easy to raise! They get along with all my other birds... I bought them b/c they do well in the cold and hot, and are dual purpose, and plan to hang on to them until they don't lay anymore and then, well...soup them

    I use to have some on the farm, I really liked the breed. Did well in winters and layed real well for me.
