Buff Plymouth Rock X Lohmann brown, should be interesting and hopefully useful layers, any thoughts on this ? Or has anyone actually done this cross.

Never done it no but it should be interesting to see how they perform especially if the rocks are from good utility lines they should be serious layers,good luck with it and give us a report back on the results.
