HI

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I joined a while ago but not have my chickens

 

I live in Extremadura Spain and we have a small finca.  Recently we have purchased  3 Nigerian Dwarf Goats and 9 mixed hens just basic regular layers, grey, brown and white, similar size to Sussex hens in the UK.

 

I have been offered a Trio of Brahmas, which along with Cochins are my Favorite breed.

 

Is it possible to keep a trio of Brahmas with my other girls, not worried about housing or land as thats plenty big enough

Welcome to BYC.  There may be some initial skirmishing when you add the Brahmas, but they should be able to hold their own.  Be sure to quarantine them before adding to the flock.

Friends are the family you make for yourself.

Many thanks

 

I am not so concerned about the Brahma hens but more the Cockerer\rooster

x2 on isolating new birds before you mix them up with your existing flock. You'll want to be sure they are healthy and aren't bringing in an illness or pest into your current flock.

 

Good luck!

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock.The first breed I ever owned were Brahmas (50 years ago), and they were gentle giants. They will do fine with the rest of your flock, but just make sure that you introduce them to your flock slowly and carefully using the "look but don't touch" method. There's a good article at https://poultrykeeper.com/general-chickens/introducing-new-chickens/ explaining how to do it. If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.
