So I was looking to add two wyandottes to my mixed backyard flock. At this point I have mixed feelings because so many are saying they are more aggressive to smaller breeds. I have Easter where, polish, marans and some mutts. What are your thoughts for me? Looking to end up w flock of twelve mixed breeds in total.
I can only relate my limited experience. I have a Blue Laced Red Wyandotte and an Easter Egger who are hatchmates. I also have two Olive Egger hens. The BLRW and EE are buddies, probably since they grew up together; they were hatched by one of the OEs who went broody. The Wyandotte doesn't pick on anyone but is larger than the rest. However, she is not at top of the "pecking order". She is easily 30% larger than the EE and 25% larger than the OEs. Since the Wyandottes you'd be bringing in would be the newcomers to your pretty flock, perhaps they wouldn't be the aggressors. Good luck.
