One EE in a mixed flock? - Page 2

 I've never ever seen any pulling at the muffs by any of the other chickens and I have Buff Brahmas, Light Brahmas, Marans, and a Buff Orpingon out there with them. 

Yea, I haven't had any issues with that either (I have 2 with beard and muff, the other 2 don't really have much of either).

I have a single EE in my flock, the other birds are Speckled Sussex, Red Sex Link and Barred Plymouth Rocks. My EE is clean faced and a smidge smaller size than the RSL girls. She's in the middle of the pack as far as pecking order goes and rarely gives any of the other chickens trouble over anything. I've noticed that the RSL girls are sometimes pushy with some of the others but they never mess with the EE, all she has to do is glare at them.

 

I think you'll be fine with just one in your flock.
