    So I bought a 24 assortment of eggs, 2 of each breed. 5 hatched and I have 1 EE, 1 Wheaten Pendescena. 1 White Emporrdanesa, 1 Welsummer, 1 Light Sussex. If they are pullets, will these breeds live ok together? I have never raised chickens before and didn't realize that some breeds don't particularly go well together. And what are some good ways to get rid of the roo's?

    I don't think chickens are particularly discriminating in their behavior toward other breeds, especially if they are raised together. Have fun and show us pictures! [​IMG]

    Yes, they will do well together.

    I must say, you have the BEST little bunch of breeds I've ever heard of for a first timer! Some of those are very rare, and they'll all give some very neat egg colors. [​IMG]


    If you get extra roosters you don't want, you can always give them away. I'm sure there's someone who will want any one of those breeds you listed. [​IMG]

    Here is everyone at 1 day old except for the welsummer. She had to be assisted out after a day and a half. Then her leg was messed up so she was splinted. Shes much better now...oops and i meant partridge pendescena! LOL I'm tempted to get more from the ebayer I bought from, her assortmemt was great and its fun not knowing what you'll get until they arrive. I had a few problems, so i'm lucky any hatched!
