chicken breeds

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello All

A question to my non-feather friends who Love feathered friends. I have been looking for chicks and found a place that will have the following available:

New Hampshire reds

Barred Rocks

Speckled Sussex

Black Sexlinks

We are looking for 6 chicks, we want chickens that are good layers and play well in the sand box  together and a mixed flock  I have read so many different opinions my head is spinning which would you choose from the above. Yes we are newbies and sorry if I posted in wrong section of forum.

Thanks

All those you mention are good layers.  Start off with 2 of each of  your 3 choices.   Then when CHICKEN MATH GETS TO YOU  keep getting them in pairs.  

WISHING YOU BEST. :thumbsup  and :welcome

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
