Update: I'm in love!
I thought three would be plenty but I guess I was wrong, lol. Sent the Hubs to get three more this morning, so we've added a White Leghorn, a Buff Orpington and a New Hampshire Red. I read that the bigger the flock, the happier the girls . He was cool with it, but he also isn't going to be the one doing most of the work lol.
Right now I can't tell the difference between the Buff and the Red, both are gold and calm. Everyone seems to be doing fine - eating, drinking, sleeping, pooping - and they all get along nicely.
I think the Brown Leghorn is my favorite right now. What breed do you guys prefer?
Congrats on your new chicks! My favorite breeds are Buff Orpingtons and Ameraucanas. I love that you have a variety of breeds. It's so cool that you've already fallen in love! Keep us updated and maybe you could post some pics.
