Mixing buff oprhington and rhode island reds

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Getting my 1st chickens and am wondering if it is okay to mix these 2. Just looking for good egg layers that can also be meat hens. I really like RIR but hear they can rough up the buffs. I am getting 3 to start with..whats a good mix? 2 buffs and 1 red? Thanks

I have 3 RIR hens with many other different breeds in my layer pen including 3 buff orp hens and 2 black orp hens, and 3 white orp hens. The Orps can definitely hold their own ground lol. If they are raised together they usually get along. 

Specializing in Solid Black and Blue Marans also have: Wheaten,Golden Cuckoo, Blue/Blk Copper,barred BTB, BTB, blue/blk birchen Marans.  Lavender, white, buff, chocolate, black Orps, Silkies, Key West aka Gypsy chickens, Ameraucanas, Muscovies, Sebastapol Geese, Guineas,Gobblers, Parrots.
