Barred Plymouth Rock.jpg
chicks barred rock.jpg

Barred Plymouth Rocks are one of America’s oldest and most popular breeds (1869). They are an excellent dual purpose breed, known for their efficient production of large brown eggs. They are good winter layers, cold hardy, heat hardy, and are moderate foragers. All of their plumage is black and white barred which is the result of the barred (B) gene. Because males are homozygous for the allele (BB) they are therefore lighter.

Delawares were developed in the state of Delaware from off-colored sports of a Barred Plymouth Rock and New Hampshire Red cross. They have a similar genetic makeup to Barred Plymouth Rocks except that they lack the E gene that allows for the extension of black; therefore, limiting the black plumage to the hackles, primaries, secondaries and the tail feathers. Delaware chicks are primarily light yellow, or cream colored with some having a few black specks or spots mostly on top of the head, wings and wing tips. They have single combs and clean, yellow legs and feet. Adults have a similar body shape to New Hampshire Reds with a Columbian plumage pattern.

First known as Chinese Shanghai Fowl, Cochins first came to America in 1845. They were originally known for their prolific production of brown eggs, but selection was later directed towards the production of fowl and roaster meat. Today, since other breeds are more efficient meat producers, they are primarily kept for their unique appearance. Barred Cochin chicks are primarily black with a white spot on top of the head, and some white on their wing tips, abdomen and neck. They have single combs and black feathers on their yellow legs and feet. All the plumage of adult Barred Cochins is barred black and white. Because of the effect of the sex-linked barred gene, males are slightly lighter than females. Cochins have a notably large body, with soft and loose feathers that accentuate their size.

Cornish Rock.jpg
Cornish Rock chicks.JPG

Cornish Rocks are fast growing broiler crosses that are efficient producers of broiler meat. When broiler rations are fed, producers can expect a six pound broiler in six weeks or less. If feed is not restricted in adult birds the become very sluggish and tend to sit around eating most of the day. Birds can develop fluid retention or weak legs if growth occurs too quickly. If necessary restrict the feed to slow the growth rate if birds become overly sluggish.
