After much debate, my family and I have decided to get a mixed flock of backyard chickens. We want chickens that are friendly, docile, and are good around kids, while also being a reliable layer.
Here's a list of the chickens we are interested in:
1. Light Brahma
2. Buff Orpington
4. Barred Rock
Would these breeds mix well together?
We are planning on having a small flock of 4, could I have one of each? Or maybe, could I have two Buff Orps, one brahma, and a barred rock or ameraucana?
Are there any other breeds I should take into consideration?
Can I have Brahma's even though I live in a warm climate (California)?
