Whereabouts in IN are you located Jenny? I live in Wayne county near Richmond. We have chickens and rabbits but the wife own't let me butcher em, they're pets. For egg layers the barred rocks you mentioned, along with black australorps, and rhode island reds are my favorites and seem to be the best producers. For meat birds I reccomend cornish cros, they grow fast, are very feed efficient and healthy. If i remember right it only takes a around 3 months to feed em to butcher weight. I'd suggest breaking your butcherind down into 3 or 4 times a year so you don't get burned out doing them all at once, and once done your using some before the rest get freezer burned.
