My hubbie has nearly finished building me a chicken coup and fenced a large yard for about 5 laying chickens. My question is, should I buy all five chickens at the same time so they get along better in the yard? I've heard the Australorps are fairly docile and are good layers as are RIR's but I'd love to have one or two Wyandotte's as I think they're beautiful.
Also if I get a Wyandotte Rooster, will that be a problem if it breeds with the other different breeds and should I buy him at the same time as I buy the hens so they all get along?
I mainly want chickens to produce eggs for us but also love the colours of the Wyandottes.
This is the not quite finished chicken castle.
I'm new to this site but it seems a really helpful, informative site.
