    Our White Rock pullets are outstanding for egg production the entire year, and are especially desirable through the cold winter months when lighter breeds slack off. They lay a brown egg of fine quality and size. The rapid growth, white, easy-to- dress feathers, and golden yellow skin of the cockerels of our strain make them equally desirable.   Male barred chick (left) & female barred chick (right) views Tom Wheeler chicks, Marion, IL Champion Bantam, Central Ind.

      Dad is a White Plymouth Rock (bought at TSC) and Mom is a Barred Plymouth Rock (bought from a local farm/hatchery). I hatched 2 babies, and when they first hatched, I noticed they had the same blueness that my Blue Orps had when I hatched them.   In fact, to pick our backyard pet chickens, as opposed to our farm chickens, we selected the friendliest, most curious chicks from our 25 chick variety pack to stay at our house. Of the four selected, three were Plymouth Rocks, two white and one barred. Mini, a White Plymouth Rock, is one of our favorite hens.
