I have BO's and BR's, they get along quite well together and am sure you will enjoy the additions.

One of the most important things you can do for your flock is to isolate the new birds for a 30-day period. That will help safeguard your existing chickens from any pests or illnesses the new birds may have. After that, giving both sets of birds a chance to "look but not touch" for a couple of weeks will help them get used to each other. Once they are all together, there will probably still be some little skirmishes as they determine the new pecking order, but as long as bleeding or serious injury doesn't occur, they should all be fine.

 

Good luck!

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
