Question of the Week – Plymouth Barred Rock

Posted by romeethredge on February 27, 2015

Last week I had a photo of some multi purpose chickens called Plymouth Barred Rock. They are beautiful and lay brown eggs and can be fried up as well.

Commercial chickens today are not multi purpose but they are very good at either being layers or broilers. Georgia is big into poultry production and we grow a lot of corn to feed them, but not enough as corn has to be brought in from the Midwest. It’s very important to the economy of our state.

Here’s the link to UGA’s Management Guide for the Backyard Flock.

 

This week’s question is…..Who is this and what year was the photo taken?

This is the Georgia State Champion Barrow, and I saw my friend’s name in the book last week while we were at the state livestock shows.
