I would like to ask the members here their opinion.

Who do you think has a very good strain of (hopefully) Show Quality
Rhode Island Red and/or Barred Plymouth Rock
that also LAY well?

I realize that in most cases - production strains tend to have been bred for laying, and show strains for looking at - but - SOMEBODY out there must have or know of strains that do BOTH as they were originally intended to do.

Can you please reply with contact information for the individuals, hopefully a photo of their birds, and their anticipated first year egg production?

Thank you

My birds are show quality, but I do not know as of yet if they are good layers. They are still young, the male is only 5 months and the females are 4-4.5.

Here are some photos of them:

Hen (that I KNOW is laying, but she didn't came from the same lines as my other Barred Rocks):
