So one of each of those would be ok for a flock I don't need to have two of the same I can just mix and match.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

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

Red Sexlinks, Black Sexlinks, RI Reds, Barred Rock, Buff Orpington, Welsummer, Speckled Sussex, Silver Laced Wyandotte, Golden Laced Wyandotte, Black Australorp, White Leghorn, Brown Leghorn, Light Brahma.

 

Thanks For the help Tom


If I were choosing four from your list I would go with the Black Sex Links, Black Australorps, Buff Orpingtons, and Speckled Sussex. Light Brahmas would be a strong 5th consideration.

I think you'll be very happy with that combination and you should get loads of brown eggs. :o)
