black rock chickens
« on: February 14, 2010, 16:08 »
hi does anyone have black rock adult birds if they do how big are they, i am looking to purchase 8 and wanted an egg layer that was about the columbian black tail size, so i could introduce my 2 columbian black tails to the flock. they will be in an 1 acre enclosure with 6 wellsummer banthans and 1 silkie, they will have their own house but will be in the same outside space, do you think this will work.

Don't see why not, I have 1/2 acre with 19 large fowl and 2 bantams. 1 black rock - lovely girl, good layer and made an excellent mum when she went broody, 1 bluebelle, 1 amberlink, 1 cuckoo maran, 1 welsummer, 1 copper black maran, 5 silkie crosses, 3 white araucanas, 2 lavender araucanas, 1 black red araucana, 2 lavender araucana cockerels and a pair of sablepoots and apart from the odd squabble they cope very well together  :D
Staffies are softer than you think.

Hi, We've two Black Rocks. They are not very big, but I don't know how to size birds as the feathers give a false idea of size and weight must include feathers (anybody?) Good layers. Great characters and mix well with the Warrens we have. Do like to explore and have long conversations with you. Easy to hold and very docile, quick learners. We did have three but the exploring led one into a Buzzard's clutches. It seems likely that your idea will be a winner.
